metch: a mesh/volume registration toolbox
, coined from "mesh" and "match", is a Matlab
mesh/volume registration toolbox. It provides straightforward
functions to register point clouds (or surfaces) to a
triangular/cubic surface mesh by calculating an optimal
(in terms of matrix A for scaling
, and b for translation). It also allows one to
project a point cloud onto the surface using surface norms
and guarantee the conformity of the points to the surface. At this point,
metch can only perform rigid-body registration
in terms of
a linear transformation.
The current release of metch toolbox also comes with a graphical interface (matlab only)
in addition to the script-mode functions. With this GUI, users can easily
select the landmark points to create the initial mapping, and trigger the
optimization and projection steps of the workflow.
You can find the full documentation from Doc page and read the example outputs and see what metch can do]].
- [2008/12/17] the alpha version of metch (v0.5, codenamed Marshmallow) is now ready for download.
