Data Computing Models
We have presented a new method for computing 3D models from unorganized raw 3D data. Since our method works with raw 3D point sets, we do not need to know anything about the kind of sensor used for obtaining data. The method proposed here can be used with most of the 3D scanner devices. First, we have explained an algorithm...
