For many applications ranging from geometry compression to reverse engineering, finding the concise and faithful approximation of an excessively verbose 3D data (in particular, scanned meshes) is beneficial for subsequent processing and may reduce the computational cost dramatically. The proposed project aims to implement the Variational Shape Approximation (VSA) framework and extract the approximated mesh. Apart from approximation, it can be viewed as a package for simplification or shape discovery or a complement to current mesh segmentation package.
