Slic3r - Open Source toolpath generator for 3D printers

  •    C++

Slic3r is mainly a toolpath generator for 3D printers: it reads 3D models (STL, OBJ, AMF, 3MF) and it converts them into G-code instructions for 3D printers. But it does much more than that, see the features list below. Slic3r was born in 2011 within the RepRap community and thanks to its high configurability became the swiss-army knife for 3D printing. It served as a platform for experimenting several new ideas that later became technology standards, such as multiple extruders, brim, variable-height layers, per-object settings, modifiers, post-processing scripts, G-code macros and more. Despite being based on volunteer efforts, Slic3r is still pushing the boundaries of 3D printing.

A set of widely used algorithms, e.g., point cloud normal estimation/re-orientation, Poisson surface reconstruction, RANSAC, mesh simplification, subdivision, smoothing, parameterization, remeshing, and more (the implementation of several surface mesh processing algorithms were taken from PMP).

hmm - Heightmap meshing utility.

  •    C

hmm is a heightmap meshing utility. If you've done any 3D game development, 3D printing, or other such things, you've likely wanted to convert a grayscale heightmap image into a 3D mesh. The naive way is pretty simple but generates huge meshes with millions of triangles. After hacking my way through various solutions over the years, I finally decided I needed to write a good tool for this purpose.

GLyphy is a signed-distance-field (SDF) text renderer using OpenGL ES2 shading language. The main difference between GLyphy and other SDF-based OpenGL renderers is that most other projects sample the SDF into a texture. This has all the usual problems that sampling has. Ie. it distorts the outline and is low quality.

3detr - Code & Models for 3DETR - an End-to-end transformer model for 3D object detection

  •    Python

PyTorch implementation and models for 3DETR. 3DETR (3D DEtection TRansformer) is a simpler alternative to complex hand-crafted 3D detection pipelines. It does not rely on 3D backbones such as PointNet++ and uses few 3D-specific operators. 3DETR obtains comparable or better performance than 3D detection methods such as VoteNet. The encoder can also be used for other 3D tasks such as shape classification. More details in the paper "An End-to-End Transformer Model for 3D Object Detection".

draco - Draco is a library for compressing and decompressing 3D geometric meshes and point clouds

  •    C++

Draco is a library for compressing and decompressing 3D geometric meshes and point clouds. It is intended to improve the storage and transmission of 3D graphics.Draco was designed and built for compression efficiency and speed. The code supports compressing points, connectivity information, texture coordinates, color information, normals, and any other generic attributes associated with geometry. With Draco, applications using 3D graphics can be significantly smaller without compromising visual fidelity. For users, this means apps can now be downloaded faster, 3D graphics in the browser can load quicker, and VR and AR scenes can now be transmitted with a fraction of the bandwidth and rendered quickly.

3dmatch-toolbox - 3DMatch - a 3D ConvNet-based local geometric descriptor for aligning 3D meshes and point clouds

  •    C++

Matching local geometric features on real-world depth images is a challenging task due to the noisy, low-resolution, and incomplete nature of 3D scan data. These difficulties limit the performance of current state-of-art methods, which are typically based on histograms over geometric properties. In this paper, we present 3DMatch, a data-driven model that learns a local volumetric patch descriptor for establishing correspondences between partial 3D data. To amass training data for our model, we propose an unsupervised feature learning method that leverages the millions of correspondence labels found in existing RGB-D reconstructions. Experiments show that our descriptor is not only able to match local geometry in new scenes for reconstruction, but also generalize to different tasks and spatial scales (e.g. instance-level object model alignment for the Amazon Picking Challenge, and mesh surface correspondence). Results show that 3DMatch consistently outperforms other state-of-the-art approaches by a significant margin.
