edges_object_model_3d — Find edges in a 3D object model.
edges_object_model_3d finds 3D edges in the 3D object model
ObjectModel3D and returns them in the 3D object model
The operator supports edge extraction only from 3D object models that
contain a XYZ mapping, such as models that were created with
xyz_to_object_model_3d or that were obtained with a sensor that
delivers the mapping.
MinAmplitude defines the minimum amplitude of a discontinuity in
order to be classified as an edge.
It is given in the same unit as used in
The extracted edges are a subset of the points of the input object model.
In addition to the coordinates of the edges, the point normal vectors
ObjectModel3DEdges contain the viewing direction of each
3D edge point from the viewpoint towards the edge point.
Also, the attributes 'edge_dir_x', 'edge_dir_y' and
'edge_dir_z' contain a vector that is perpendicular to
the edge direction and to the viewing direction.
The attributes are set such that the 3D object model can be used
for edge-supported surface-based matching in
Generic parameters can optionally be used to influence the edge extraction.
If desired, these parameters and their corresponding values can be specified
The following values for
GenParamName are possible:
This parameter specifies the viewpoint from which the 3D data is
It is used to determine the viewing directions and edge directions.
It defaults to the origin '0 0 0' of the 3D data.
If the projection center is at a different location, for example, if
the 3D object model was transformed with
rigid_trans_object_model_3d or if the 3D sensor performed a
similar transformation, the original viewpoint must be set.
GenParamValue must contain a string consisting of
the three coordinates (x, y and z) of the viewpoint, separated by spaces.
The viewpoint is defined in the same coordinate frame as
Default value: '0 0 0'
This parameter specifies the maximum gap size in pixels in the XYZ-images that are closed. Gaps larger than this value will contain edges at their boundary, while gaps smaller than this value will not. This suppresses edges around smaller patches that were not reconstructed by the sensor as well as edges at the more distant part of a discontinuity. For sensors with very large resolutions, the value should be increased to avoid spurious edges.
Default value: 30
This operator supports cancelling timeouts and interrupts.
Handle of the 3D object model whose edges should be computed.

Names of the generic parameters.

3D object model containing the edges.
edges_object_model_3d returns 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if all parameters are
correct. If necessary, an exception is raised.
