Getting the code

It is assumed that the main directory dedicated for 3dBAR is /home/$USERNAME/3dbar. if you want to install it in another directory, replace 3dbar with the desired path.

To get the latest stable version of 3dBAR fill out  the following form then download 3dBAR using the link provided via email.

Unzip the file to your home directory and go to the 3dBAR directory:

mkdir ~/3dbar; unzip 3dbar_latest.zip -d ~/3dbar ; cd ~/3dbar;

The directories have the following purposes:

  • bin: Holds all executable files, atlas parsers and auxiliary scripts
  • lib: Holds the 3dBAR api
  • atlases: Directory, where the source data, CAF datasets and reconstructed models are stored. Each dataset (denoted as DATASET_NAME) contains the following subdirectories:
    • atlases/DATASET_NAME/src : Here the source data is located. It can be placed manually by a user or downloaded from internet depending on a particular parser.
    • atlases/DATASET_NAME/caf : This is the directory where a CAF dataset is generated by specific parsers.
    • atlases/DATASET_NAME/reconstructions : The directory for reconstructed models.

Then follow instructions from README file to verify if the installation was successful.
