ShapeWorks Cloud Groom Module

The groom module provides option for mesh grooming and alighnment. The groomed object is able to be viewed in the Shape Viewer. You also have the option of skipping grooming if your data is already prepped. For more information on how to groom your data, navigate here.

To groom the data, click the "Groom" option. If you wish to re-groom data, simply click "Regroom".

To restore the groom parameters to the default values, click "Restore Defaults".

Mesh Grooming Parameters

Parameter Description
Fill Holes Fill small holes in the mesh
Smooth Perform either Laplacian or Windowed Sinc smoothing
Laplacian Smoothing Laplacian smoothing option with specified iterations and relaxation factor. In general, it is recommended to use smaller relaxation factors and more iterations rather than larger relaxation and fewer iterations
Windowed Sinc Smoothing Windowed Sinc smoothing with specified iterations and passband (typically between 0 and 2). Lower passpand values produce more smoothing
Smoothing Iterations Number of iterations of selected smoothing. More iterations provides more smoothing
Laplacian Relaxation Controls the amount of smoothing in each iteration
Windowed Sinc Pass Band Alters how much smoothing each iteration performs
Remesh Enabled remeshing using ACVD library
Remesh Percent Specify target vertices as a percentage of existing vertices
Remesh Vertices Specify target vertices directly
Remesh Adaptivity Curvature adaptivity of remeshing (0 = uniform, 2.0 most adaptive). This allocates more triangles/vertices to areas of higher curvature

Alignment Parameters

Parameter Description
Reflect Option to reflect some shapes over a given axis if a given column matches a given value (e.g. reflect 'side' over 'Y' if 'left')
Alignment Option to align with centering (center of mass), iterative closest point (translation and rotation), or landmarks (best fit, when specified)
