A paint-based approach for optimal lighting design in real scenes
Lighting design is a computational expensive task, commonly done using Computer-aided design (CAD) software in a virtual scene. The designer places and tunes the virtual light sources and, yet the virtual environment is ideal for physically correct light tracing, the costly simulation might not provide the desired impression in the real scene. Moreover, the chosen light placement is not necessarily optimized. In this work we capture light behavior from real scenes as well as 3D scene properties and use this information to recreate different lighting designs. The results approximates physical correctness while visualizing the illumination on the real scene in a more time-efficient way. To make the design process more intuitive, the user paints the desired light properties instead of placing the light sources. The system attempts to find valid positions and parameters of the light sources in the scene to reflect the current design. Constraints such as number of light sources and emission profiles as well as spatial constraints can also be specified.
You are cordially invited to attend our Computer Graphics and Visualization Research Seminar on Thursday, November 22nd, 2018, 13:00-14:00, at VMB COLLOQUIUMZAAL.

Title: Topology Optimization of Multiscale Structures for 3D Printing
Abstract: 3D printing enables the fabrication of complex structures. In engineering the benefits of this manufacturing flexibility are probably best demonstrated in combination with the design of structures by topology optimization. In this talk I will present our research on topology optimization of multiscale structures. The first approach, inspired by trabecular bone, generates porous bone-like infill structures for 3D printing. This approach is extended to allow simultaneous optimization of shape boundaries and the interior lattice. To reduce its computational complexity, a homogenization-based approach is developed to project orthotropic lattice structures. In the second approach, we develop a continuous formulation to the discrete problem of quadtree subdivision. By restricting the subdivision level, geometric features such as maximum and minimum structure sizes can be controlled, for manufacturing benefits.
Images of optimized structures and fabrication results can be found on this page.
We have one new PhD joining our group, Baran Usta, welcome!
Baran got his BSc in Computer Science and Engineering from Sabanci University, Turkey in 2015. He got his MSc in Computer Science and Engineering from the same university in 2018. During his studies, he was an exchange student at TU/e for bachalors and TU Delft for masters.

16 APRIL 2018 09:00 T/M 19 APRIL 2018 18:00 – LOCATIE: TU DELFT AULA CONGRESS CENTER – DOOR: COMMUNICATION EWI
Eurographics 2018 continues a series of conferences organized by the Eurographics Association covering the wide field of Computer Graphics, from rendering techniques to geometry and mesh processing, as well as computer animation and physical simulation.
The 39th Eurographics conference will be held on April 16-20, 2018 in Delft, The Netherlands. Delft University of Technology will host the conference.
Berend Klein-Haneveld and Cees-Willem Hofstede successfully defended their theses in our group this week.
On Wednesday, the 26th of March, Berend defended his thesis “RegistrationShop – an interactive 3D medical volume registration tool”. In his work he developed RegistrationShop as a tool that aims to make the complex process of 3D volume registration easier by providing simple interaction techniques and real-time visual feedback of the current registration results. Users are able to place landmarks in 3D either by surface picking or by tracing a ray through the volume until the desired location is reached. During the registration process they are provided with visualizations of both the moving and fixed volumes as well as the current registration result in a combined view.
On Friday, the 28th of March, Cees-Willem defended his thesis “The Online Anatomical Human – an online browser and annotation system for real human anatomy”. He worked on bringing anatomical education to a web browser, by creating an online environment in which a 3D anatomical model of the pelvis is linked to 2D medical imaging data. Users are able to annotate structures directly on the 3D mesh using landmark, brush and line tools and can enrich the model with their annotations. Both theses were supervised by Charl Botha, Anna Vilanova and Noeska Smit.
We’d like to congratulate Berend en Cees-Willem on their Master of Science titles!
