Abstract

With online repositories for 3D models like 3D Warehouse becoming more prevalent and growing ever larger, new possibilities have opened up for both experienced and inexperienced users alike. These large collections of shapes can provide inspiration for designers or make it possible to synthesize new shapes by combining different parts from already existing shapes, which can be both easy to learn and a fast way of creating new shapes.

But exploring large shape collections or searching for particular kinds of shapes can be difficult and time-consuming tasks as well, especially considering that online repositories are often disorganized. In our work, we propose a relation-based way to parametrize shape collections, allowing the user to explore the entire set of shapes by controlling a small number of parameters.
