Scalismo Lab: rigid alignment

Learn how to rigidly align a dataset of 3D surface meshes in Scalismo Lab.
In this hands-on step, you will learn how to rigidly align a dataset of misaligned faces in Scalismo.

We will start by quickly defining the notion of rigid point transformation in Scalismo and use it to rotate and translate meshes. We will then see how to use landmarks to retrieve the best rigid transformation allowing to align one mesh to another.

To access the tutorial document:

  1. Switch to Scalismo Lab.
  2. Select the Rigid Alignment document under:
    Documents -> Fast track, for the fast track version
    Documents -> Full track, for the full track version

If you have questions, ask them in the comments section here on FutureLearn.

If you are doing the full track version, please remember that the exercises are optional. If you find them too hard, you can continue going through the tutorial without solving the exercises.
