Analyze shapes of meshes

Project description


License BSD-3 PyPI Python Version tests codecov napari hub

Analyze shapes of meshes: This plugin provides advanced measures of shape for meshes. It is based largely on the following libraries and tools:

Shape analysis

This plugin provides Laplace spectra (Reuter, Wolter, Peinecke (2005)), heat kernel signatures (Bronstein & Kokkinos (2010)) & wave kernel signatures (Audrey, Schlickewei, Cremers et al.).

Laplace spectra can be imagined to be the equivalent of resonance modes on the surface of a mesh. The resonance and the resonance modes can, for typical objects, look like this:

Heat kernel signatures: Heat dissipation on a mesh depends on local geometry. You can use the heat kernel signature to easily generate a large number of local features of shape


This plugin provides a number of methods to unwrap a mesh into basic shapes such as spheres or disks. The method relies on boundary-first flattening - currently it's only available on Windows.

This napari plugin was generated with Cookiecutter using @napari's cookiecutter-napari-plugin template.
