Multi-view triangulation is the gold standard for 3D reconstruction from 2D correspondences, given known calibration and sufficient views. However in practice expensive multi-view setups — involving tens sometimes hundreds of cameras — are required to obtain the high fidelity 3D reconstructions necessary for modern applications. In this work we present a novel approach that leverages recent advances in 2D-3D lifting using neural shape priors while also enforcing multi-view equivariance. We show that our method can achieve comparable fidelity to expensive calibrated multi-view rigs using a limited (2-3) number of uncalibrated camera views.

MobileBrick: Building LEGO for 3D Reconstruction on Mobile Devices

High-quality 3D ground-truth shapes are critical for 3D object reconstruction evaluation. However, it is difficult to create a replica of an object in reality, and even 3D reconstructions generated by 3D scanners have artefacts that cause biases in evaluation. To address this issue, we introduce a novel multi-view RGBD dataset captured using a mobile device, which includes highly precise 3D ground-truth annotations for 153 object models featuring…

Efficient Multi-view Stereo via Attention-Driven 2D Convolutions

Deep learning has made significant impacts on multi-view stereo systems. State-of-the-art approaches typically involve building a cost volume, followed by multiple 3D convolution operations to recover the input image's pixel-wise depth. While such end-to-end learning of plane-sweeping stereo advances public benchmarks' accuracy, they are typically very slow to compute. We present MVS2D, a highly efficient multi-view stereo algorithm that…
