open3d.t.geometry.PointCloud#

class open3d.t.geometry.PointCloud#

A point cloud contains a list of 3D points. The point cloud class stores the attribute data in key-value maps, where the key is a string representing the attribute name and the value is a Tensor containing the attribute data.

The attributes of the point cloud have different levels:

import open3d as o3d

device = o3d.core.Device("CPU:0")
dtype = o3d.core.float32

# Create an empty point cloud
# Use pcd.point to access the points' attributes
pcd = o3d.t.geometry.PointCloud(device)

# Default attribute: "positions".
# This attribute is created by default and is required by all point clouds.
# The shape must be (N, 3). The device of "positions" determines the device
# of the point cloud.
pcd.point.positions = o3d.core.Tensor([[0, 0, 0],
                                       [1, 1, 1],
                                       [2, 2, 2]], dtype, device)

# Common attributes: "normals", "colors".
# Common attributes are used in built-in point cloud 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 point cloud.
pcd.point.normals = o3d.core.Tensor([[0, 0, 1],
                                     [0, 1, 0],
                                     [1, 0, 0]], dtype, device)
pcd.point.colors = o3d.core.Tensor([[0.0, 0.0, 0.0],
                                    [0.1, 0.1, 0.1],
                                    [0.2, 0.2, 0.2]], dtype, device)

# User-defined attributes.
# You can also attach custom attributes. The value tensor must be on the
# same device as the point cloud. The are no restrictions on the shape and
# dtype, e.g.,
pcd.point.intensities = o3d.core.Tensor([0.3, 0.1, 0.4], dtype, device)
pcd.point.labels = o3d.core.Tensor([3, 1, 4], o3d.core.int32, device)

armadillo_data.path).sample_points_poisson_disk(5000)

orient_normals_consistent_tangent_plane(self: open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud, k: int, lambda: float = 0.0, cos_alpha_tol: float = 1.0) None#

Function to consistently orient the normals of a point cloud based on tangent planes.

The algorithm is described in Hoppe et al., “Surface Reconstruction from Unorganized Points”, 1992. Additional information about the choice of lambda and cos_alpha_tol for complex point clouds can be found in Piazza, Valentini, Varetti, “Mesh Reconstruction from Point Cloud”, 2023 (https://eugeniovaretti.github.io/meshreco/Piazza_Valentini_Varetti_MeshReconstructionFromPointCloud_2023.pdf).

Parameters:
  • k (int) – Number of neighbors to use for tangent plane estimation.

  • lambda (float) – A non-negative real parameter that influences the distance metric used to identify the true neighbors of a point in complex geometries. It penalizes the distance between a point and the tangent plane defined by the reference point and its normal vector, helping to mitigate misclassification issues encountered with traditional Euclidean distance metrics.

  • cos_alpha_tol (float) – Cosine threshold angle used to determine the inclusion boundary of neighbors based on the direction of the normal vector.

Example

We use Bunny point cloud to compute its normals and orient them consistently. The initial reconstruction adheres to Hoppe’s algorithm (raw), whereas the second reconstruction utilises the lambda and cos_alpha_tol parameters. Due to the high density of the Bunny point cloud available in Open3D a larger value of the parameter k is employed to test the algorithm. Usually you do not have at disposal such a refined point clouds, thus you cannot find a proper choice of k: refer to https://eugeniovaretti.github.io/meshreco for these cases.:

select_by_index(self, indices, invert=False, remove_duplicates=False)#

Select points from input pointcloud, based on indices into output point cloud.

Parameters:
  • indices (open3d.core.Tensor) – Int64 indexing tensor of shape {n,} containing index value that is to be selected.

  • invert (bool, optional, default=False) – Set to True to invert the selection of indices, and also ignore the duplicated indices.

  • remove_duplicates (bool, optional, default=False) – Set to True to remove the duplicated indices.

Returns:

open3d.t.geometry.PointCloud

select_by_mask(self, boolean_mask, invert=False)#

Select points from input pointcloud, based on boolean mask indices into output point cloud.

Parameters:
  • boolean_mask (open3d.core.Tensor) – Boolean indexing tensor of shape {n,} containing true value for the indices that is to be selected..

  • invert (bool, optional, default=False) – Set to True to invert the selection of indices.

Returns:

open3d.t.geometry.PointCloud

to(self: open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud, device: open3d.cpu.pybind.core.Device, copy: bool = False) open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud#

Transfer the point cloud to a specified device.

to_legacy(self: open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud) open3d.cpu.pybind.geometry.PointCloud#

Convert to a legacy Open3D PointCloud.

transform(self: open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud, transformation: open3d.cpu.pybind.core.Tensor) open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud#

Transforms the points and normals (if exist).

translate(self: open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud, translation: open3d.cpu.pybind.core.Tensor, relative: bool = True) open3d.cpu.pybind.t.geometry.PointCloud#

Translates points.

uniform_down_sample(self, every_k_points)#

Downsamples a point cloud by selecting every kth index point and its attributes.

Parameters:

every_k_points (int) – Sample rate, the selected point indices are [0, k, 2k, …].

Returns:

open3d.t.geometry.PointCloud

voxel_down_sample(self, voxel_size, reduction='mean')#

Downsamples a point cloud with a specified voxel size.

Parameters:
  • voxel_size (float) – The size of the voxel used to downsample the point cloud.

  • reduction (str) – The approach to pool point properties in a voxel. Can only be “mean” at current.

Returns:

A downsampled point cloud with point properties reduced in each voxel.

Example

We will load the Eagle dataset, downsample it, and show the result:

eagle = o3d.data.EaglePointCloud()
pcd = o3d.t.io.read_point_cloud(eagle.path)
pcd_down = pcd.voxel_down_sample(voxel_size=0.05)
o3d.visualization.draw([{'name': 'pcd', 'geometry': pcd}, {'name': 'pcd_down', 'geometry': pcd_down}])
Parameters:
  • voxel_size (float) – Voxel size. A positive number.

  • reduction (str, optional, default='mean') –

Returns:

open3d.t.geometry.PointCloud
