1 Introduction

As a new multimedia type, 3D models play an important role in many applications, such as movie production, entertainment, virtual reality, and so on. The popularization of 3D data has created an urgent demand for effective 3D model retrieval systems. Searching 3D databases for similar models can sometimes speed up design or research processes, thus, content-based 3D model retrieval methods have become a hot topic during the last few years [9]. Such methods can be used to discover geometric relationships in 3D data, and find the required data from local databases or from the Internet.

The main challenge to a content-based 3D model retrieval system is the extraction of the most representative features of 3D models [39]. Several retrieval methods for searching dat ...
