A Framework for Modeling 3D Scenes Using Pose-Free Equations

This paper presents a novel pose-free formulation for 3D reconstruction. Unlike self-calibration, omitting pose parameters from acquisition implies that no external calibration data must be computed or provided, which significantly simplifies acquisition, fundamentally improves the robustness and accuracy of the reconstruction, and allows the use of uncalibrated active correspondence methods.

3D Modeling With Silhouettes

A new sketch-based modeling approach in which 3D models are interactively designed by drawing 2D views of an object from the front, side, and top. By limiting the approach to 2D input, the aim is to reduce the challenge of 3D modeling to the simpler task of 2D drawing.

Apparent Layer Operations for the Manipulation of Deformable Objects

Introduction of layer operations for single-view 3D deformable object manipulation, in which the user can control the depth order of layered 3D objects with simple clicks and drags, as in 2D drawing systems.

Popup: Automatic Paper Architectures From 3D Models

An automatic algorithm for generating paper architectures given a user-specified 3D model. The method provides geometric formulation of planar layouts for paper architectures that can be popped-up in a rigid and stable manner, and sufficient conditions for 3D surfaces to be popped-up from such planar layouts.
