Computational Design Tools for Smart Model Synthesis

by Niloy Mitra (UCL) Wednesday October 16th at 2pm in Byron blanc

Recent times has seen an explosion of 3D content, either acquired using scanners or synthesized using modeling tools. Such growing model collections necessitate the development of algorithms to analyze, explore, organize, and synthesize such massive collections. In this talk, I will talk about methods both in terms of model analysis and structure-aware synthesis. I will summarize different approaches to analyze such collections, and then talk about latest attempts to use the extracted structure towards intuitive computational tools to create semantically meaningful yet easy-to-fabricate shapes.
