Title: Sketch-based instancing of parameterized 3D models

Abstract: We present a system for constructing 3D models from simple hand-drawn sketches. The system exploits a priori knowledge about the type of object being sketched. In particular, we assume that the class of object being drawn is known, (e.g., a rocket ship) and that the object will be drawn using a fixed number of known components. By using these assumptions, we show that we can build a sketch-based modeling system that, while object specific, is capable of quickly creating geometric models that are beyond the scope of current sketch-based modeling approaches. Key to our approach is the use of a K-means classifier for labeling each drawn stroke as being a particular component in the generic model. We demonstrate our approach by applying this classifier to face and rocket sketches.
