Abstract: Resizing of 3D models can be very useful when creating new models or when reusing old ones. However, naive resizing can create serious visual artifacts which destroy the characteristics of an object. In this work an algorithm that protects the features of 3D models during resizing is introduced. It is specialized for furniture models because it should be applied to a furniture configurator. We observed that the distortion that occurs during scaling is not distributed uniformly across the object. Our algorithm automatically detects the vulnerable parts of a model and then stretches only the non-vulnerable ones. Furthermore, the algorithm takes into account that when scaling a mesh in a specific direction, the texture has to be adapted as well in order to prevent representation errors.
