An effective method for retrieving 3D models is to represent and discriminate them with their 2D images projected from multiple viewpoints. Such view-based methods conform more closely to human visual recognition for 3D model retrieval, since the human retina essentially captures 2D images. However, most of the existing view-based methods do not take into account that different views have different importance even though they belong to the same object. To address this problem, we propose a novel view-based method for 3D CAD model retrieval. First, the PHOG descriptor is employed to describe the 2D images projected from a model. Then, Lagrange multipliers, vector quantization and a Support Vector Machine (SVM) are used to adaptively assign an optimal weight to each projected image. The similarity between a 3D query model and a 3D object in database is determined by the likeness of their corresponding 2D images associated with optimal weights. The effectiveness of the proposed method is shown in the experimental part.
