open3d.t.geometry.TriangleMesh

class open3d.t.geometry.TriangleMesh

A triangle mesh contains vertices and triangles. The triangle mesh class stores the attribute data in key-value maps. There are two maps: the vertex attributes map, and the triangle attribute map.

The attributes of the triangle mesh have different levels:

import open3d as o3d

device = o3d.core.Device("CPU:0")
dtype_f = o3d.core.float32
dtype_i = o3d.core.int32

# Create an empty triangle mesh
# Use mesh.vertex to access the vertices' attributes
# Use mesh.triangle to access the triangles' attributes
mesh = o3d.t.geometry.TriangleMesh(device)

# Default attribute: vertex.positions, triangle.indices
# These attributes is created by default and is required by all triangle
# meshes. The shape of both must be (N, 3). The device of "positions"
# determines the device of the triangle mesh.
mesh.vertex.positions = o3d.core.Tensor([[0, 0, 0],
                                            [0, 0, 1],
                                            [0, 1, 0],
                                            [0, 1, 1]], dtype_f, device)
mesh.triangle.indices = o3d.core.Tensor([[0, 1, 2],
                                            [0, 2, 3]]], dtype_i, device)

# Common attributes: vertex.colors  , vertex.normals
#                    triangle.colors, triangle.normals
# Common attributes are used in built-in triangle mesh operations. The
# spellings must be correct. For example, if "normal" is used instead of
# "normals", some internal operations that expects "normals" will not work.
# "normals" and "colors" must have shape (N, 3) and must be on the same
# device as the triangle mesh.
mesh.vertex.normals = o3d.core.Tensor([[0, 0, 1],
                                          [0, 1, 0],
                                          [1, 0, 0],
                                          [1, 1, 1]], dtype_f, device)
mesh.vertex.colors = o3d.core.Tensor([[0.0, 0.0, 0.0],
                                         [0.1, 0.1, 0.1],
                                         [0.2, 0.2, 0.2],
                                         [0.3, 0.3, 0.3]], dtype_f, device)
mesh.triangle.normals = o3d.core.Tensor(...)
mesh.triangle.colors = o3d.core.Tensor(...)

# User-defined attributes
# You can also attach custom attributes. The value tensor must be on the
# same device as the triangle mesh. The are no restrictions on the shape and
# dtype, e.g.,
pcd.vertex.labels = o3d.core.Tensor(...)
pcd.triangle.features = o3d.core.Tensor(...)

bake_triangle_attr_textures(self: open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.TriangleMesh, size: int, triangle_attr: Set[str], margin: float = 2.0, fill: float = 0.0, update_material: bool = True) → Dict[str, open3d.cpu.pybind.core.Tensor]

Bake triangle attributes into textures.

This function assumes a triangle attribute with name ‘texture_uvs’.

This function always uses the CPU device.

Parameters
  • size (int) – The width and height of the texture in pixels. Only square textures are supported.

  • triangle_attr (set) – The vertex attributes for which textures should be generated.

  • margin (float) – The margin in pixels. The recommended value is 2. The margin are additional pixels around the UV islands to avoid discontinuities.

  • fill (float) – The value used for filling texels outside the UV islands.

  • update_material (bool) – If true updates the material of the mesh. Baking a vertex attribute with the name ‘albedo’ will become the albedo texture in the material. Existing textures in the material will be overwritten.

Returns

A dictionary of tensors that store the baked textures.

Example

We generate a texture visualizing the index of the triangle to which the texel belongs to:

import open3d as o3d
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

box = o3d.geometry.TriangleMesh.create_box(create_uv_map=True)
box = o3d.t.geometry.TriangleMesh.from_legacy(box)
# Creates a triangle attribute 'albedo' which is the triangle index
# multiplied by (255//12).
box.triangle['albedo'] = (255//12)*np.arange(box.triangle.indices.shape[0], dtype=np.uint8)

# Initialize material and bake the 'albedo' triangle attribute to a
# texture. The texture will be automatically added to the material of
# the object.
box.material.set_default_properties()
texture_tensors = box.bake_triangle_attr_textures(128, {'albedo'})

# Shows the textured cube.
o3d.visualization.draw([box])

# Plot the tensor with the texture.
plt.imshow(texture_tensors['albedo'].numpy())
