Open3D v0.1.2 released - looking for contributors/feedback

Open3D
Hello everyone,

We are thrilled to announce that Open3D had underwent a remake phase,
and we have just released v0.1.2 (beta version), which is available
here: http://code.open-3d.org/releases/

Open3D is a modern and lightweight library for 3D data processing, which
exposes a set of carefully selected data structures and algorithms in
both C++ and Python. It is compatible with various operating systems
(Linux, macOS, Windows) and compilers, and can be built out of box
without any complications. Our homepage is located at:
http://open-3d.org/
Open3D is not a replacement for the PCL library, but rather a
lightweight solution for those who face dependency issues or those who
prefer rapid prototyping.

The good news for Python users is that they can start using the library
immediately via `pip install open3d`. The documentation
(http://docs.open-3d.org/) includes various tutorials to help getting
started. C++ developers can also find the library API that covers the
whole functionality at http://api.open-3d.org/

Our ultimate goal is to make Open3D a central repository for data and
strong algorithms. We are just at the start with the project, but we aim
to eventually build a very strong and sophisticated library for
processing and constructing different geometries and representations.
Hopefully, by implementing bleeding-edge algorithms, we can help the
researchers to focus more on their ideas rather than spending tremendous
time in implementing things. This can also help in unifying benchmark
frameworks, and ensuring accurate and meaningful researches.

Since the current release is just the first baby steps in our Open3D
roadmap, we are currently looking for contributors in various fields
(C++, Python, Computer vision experts, software engineering, etc). If
you can help, why do not you give us a hand at our Github organization?
Even if you are not a developer, receiving your feedback and ideas can
help us! Kindly be asked to star our Github project to receive our
updates. Our Github project is available at: http://code.open-3d.org/

Regards,
Open3D community

Care to explain the differences between

http://open3d.org/

and yours

http://open-3d.org/

As far as I can tell the "official" Open3D is at open3d.org and it's
still active. It's ok to fork projects, but why do it under the same name?


Looking forward for some clarification,

Sérgio

Im sorry but I really have no idea  what this means .  how a - 
appears to have been removed/added ?

Hi Ed,

It seems you joined after the first message was sent, but before Sérgio responded.  See the full discussion here: http://www.pcl-users.org/Open3D-v0-1-2-released-looking-for-contributors-feedback-td4046089.html

P.S. You may get confused by similar responses now that you’ve joined ;)  Find the original topic (topics are the e-mail subject line) at http://www.pcl-users.org/

Re: Open3D v0.1.2 released - looking for contributors/feedback

Open3D
In reply to this post by Sérgio Agostinho
Thank you for your question and interest!

Well, we have different directions as well as different views for the
library future!
Unlike Intel Labs team (two persons?), our society is open to others and
appreciate diversity, rapidly growing and welcoming everyone, and most
importantly: have not interests whatsoever.

It seems that Intel Labs is more biased to their own algorithms and
publications (see their references). We found them also hesitating to
accept contributions from the open-source community. The decision was
hard, but the library needed more freedom in order to provide
researchers with a library free of interests.

Thus, we set our aim to remake the library and make it free (as in
freedom) in order to the enable the open-source society to contribute
without narrow orientations or biases to specific entities or
organizations. Furthermore, we are adapting a rapid development cycle in
order to provide the researchers with bleeding-edge technology. The
differences are subtle now, but with time, it should get more obvious
and distinct.

Accordingly, and in a nutshell: Our paces and goals are totally
different!

Currently, we are considering the name any perhaps other related issues,
and hopefully will come up with a resolution soon enough.

Thanks again,
Looking forward to see you in our society,

Open3D community
