Abstract

When modeling in 3D CAD, architects often search for already existing 3D content to complete their own design, e.g. environmental models, furniture models or detailed window profiles. 3D models are normally indexed and accessed based on textual metadata. As this metadata is expensive to obtain, PROBADO3D aims to develop workflows and tools for semi-automatic indexing of 3D models. Another goal is the development of intuitive visual search and presentation interfaces that face the needs of architects looking for 3D content. PROBADO3D is a part of the PROBADO framework designed to support multimedia objects of different domains.
