Artec 3D to Sponsor 3D Scanning Event and Workshop in Scotland Later this Year

Arctec 3D will be sponsoring an event that is hosted by Glasgow, Scotland on August 23rd, 2020. This event will be focused on various method development of recovering 3D scans from partial captures. Arctec 3D and Luxembourg University will be organizing the 2020 European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), the 1st SHApe Recovery from Partial textured 3D scans (SHARP) workshop which will cover the expertise on this topic, addressing photogrammetric capture systems as well as handheld 3D scanners.


Two challenges will also take place at the event, each with two tracks. The goal of the challenges consists of reconstructing a full 3D textured mesh from a partial 3D scan. The first challenge is centered on human bodies, while the second challenge is focused on a range of generic objects. The respective datasets are as follows:

Recovery of textured human body scans

This challenge introduces a new unique dataset, 3DBodyTex.v2 – an extension of the 3DBodyTex data, which contains 3,300 textured 3D body scans with tight-fitting or loose clothing, with a large variety of poses and subjects.

Recovery of textured generic object scans

This challenge introduces a new unique dataset, 3DObjectTex.v1 – a subset from the ViewShape repository, which includes 1,200 textured 3D scans of many different objects.

You’re welcome to participate in the challenges either in person or online. To do so in person, you’ll first need to submit a paper. For online participation, you’ll have to submit a code at the end. And combining both options is also possible.
