Paper Abstract

The classical “Shape Distribution D2” algorithm takes the distance between two random points on a surface of CAD model as statistical features, and based on that it generates a feature vector to calculate the dissimilarity and achieve the retrieval goal. This algorithm has a simple principle, high computational efficiency and can get a better retrieval results for the simple shape models. Based on the analysis of D2 algorithm’s shape distribution curve, this paper enhances the algorithm’s descriptive ability for a model’s overall shape through the statistics of the angle between two random points’ normal vectors, especially for the distinctions between the model’s plane features and curved surface features; meanwhile, introduce the ratio that a line between two random points cut off by the model’s surface to enhance the algorithm’s descriptive ability for a model’s detailed features; finally, integrating the two shape describing methods with the original D2 algorithm, this paper proposes a new method based the hierarchical multi-features. Experimental results showed that this method has bigger improvements and could get a better retrieval results compared with the traditional 3D CAD model retrieval method.
