CS598b Assignment 2: 3D Reconstruction
The objective of this assignment is to reconstruct a higher-level 3D representation
from raw acquired data. You should:
Due March 21, 2000
You can be as ambitious as you want. Simple projects will involve
implementing well-known "conversion utilities" (e.g., marching cubes),
medium-level projects may involve fitting parameters of user-specified
models, and hard projects will involve deriving structure from unstructured
Choose a commonly available "raw" 3D data type (e.g., point cloud, range
images, triangle mesh, polygon soup, voxels, etc.),
Choose a "high-level" 3D object representation (e.g., surfaces, skeletons,
CSG, etc.), and
Implement a program that automatically reconstructs the high-level representation
from the acquired data type.
By midnight on March 21, please email me a written description, concisely
describing the goal of your project, your approach, issues encountered,
and evaluation of your results. Include pictures and references.
Also, we'll discuss the projects in class on Thursday 3/23 and Tuesday
3/28. Each student will make a 15 minute presentation describing
his/her project. So, please prepare a short talk so that you can
present your work to the class.
