Interactive 3D Modeling - A Survey-based Perspective on Interactive 3D Reconstruction

Julius Schöning, Gunther Heidemann

Abstract

3D reconstruction and modeling techniques based on computer vision show a significant improvement in recent decades. Despite the great variety, a majority of these techniques depend on specific photographic collections or video footage. For example, most are designed for large data collections, overlapping photos, captures from turntables or photos with lots of detectable features such as edges. If the input, however, does not fit the particular specification, most techniques can no longer create reasonable 3D reconstructions. We review the work in the research area of 3D reconstruction and 3D modeling with a focus on the specific capabilities of these methods and possible drawbacks. Within this literature review, the practical usability with the focus on the input data — the collections of photographs or videos — and on the resulting models are discussed. Upon this basis, we introduce our position of interactive 3D reconstruction and modeling as a possible opportunity of lifting current restrictions from these techniques, which leads to the possibility of creating CAD-ready models in the future.
