- Parts are useful to many geometry processing applications:
- Shape retrieval
- [Berretti99, Dey03, Funkhouser06, Shalom08]

- Shape modeling
- [Funkhouser04, Kraevoy07]

- Animation
- [Katz03, Lien05]

- Shape retrieval

Part-aware Surface Metric

- Many problems involving the analysis and understanding of a 3D object utilize a metric, which prescribes a distance function between points on the boundary surface of the object…

- Geodesic [Carmo76]
- Isophotic [Pottmann04]
- Diffusion distance [deGoes08]

Surface based!

- Not a metric
- Same value on different parts
- Distance(a,b) = SDF(a)-SDF(b) = 0

Part-aware Surface Metric

- A novel part-aware surface distance metric
- Able to effectively capture part information of a shape
- Based on volumetric considerations

- Applications:
- Segmentation
- Shape registration
- Part-aware sampling
- Shape retrieval

Part-aware Surface Metric

distance( , )

- Derived as graph distance on primal/dual graph
- Geodesic distance
- Angular distance
- VSI distance: Captures part information!
- Large distance between faces from different parts and vice versa

Part-aware Surface Metric

- Geodesic distance (approximate)
- Distant faces tend to belong to different parts (Gestalt principle of proximity)

- Angular distance
- Faces separated by concave regions tend to belong to different parts (Minima rule)

Part-aware Surface Metric

No angular difference!

- Geodesic distance: insensitive to parts
- Angular distance: subject to leakage problem

Part-aware Surface Metric

- Look at the object from inside

Part-aware Surface Metric

- Visibility can capture part information:
Significant visibility changes across part boundaries

- Able to handle open meshes with reasonably well-defined volume
- Speed-up
- Space voxelization (100*100*100) for ray-mesh intersection detection
- Use Sampling of VSI and interpolation

- Efficiency
- Empirical complexity: O(rn + n2/3r3)=O(n2) where r = 100 is grid resolution, n is number of triangles
- A mesh with 50K faces: 15 seconds

- Segmentation
- Registration
- Part-aware sampling
- Retrieval

Part-aware Surface Metric

- Test algorithm: spectral clustering [Liu04]
- Use distances to derive a spectral embedding of input mesh faces
- Cluster in embedding space

With part-aware distance

Part-aware Surface Metric

- Test algorithm: spectral embedding [Jain07] and iterative closest point [Besl92] alignment
- Use distances to derive a spectral embedding
- Register in the embedding

- Geodesic distance is usually used as it is intrinsic (invariant to articulation)
- Geodesic distance is not invariant to stretch! But VSI distance is (although not to articulations)
- Part aware: best to combines the two
