Lifting convolutional neural networks to 3D data is challenging due to different data modalities (videos, image volumes, CAD models, LiDAR data etc.) as well as computational limitations (regarding runtime and memory). In this article, I want to summarize several recent papers addressing these problems and tackling different applications such as shape recognition, shape retrieval, medical image segmentation or object detection.
This article discusses how to visualize triangular meshes available in Object File Format (
.off) in Python using occmodel. Installation instructions for installing occmodel on Ubuntu are included.
