Open3D: A Modern Library for 3D Data Processing | Documentation | Quick Start | Build from Source | Python API | C++ API | Demo | Contribute

Open3D is an open-source library that supports rapid development of software that deals with 3D data. The Open3D frontend exposes a set of carefully selected data structures and algorithms in both C++ and Python. The backend is highly optimized and is set up for parallelization. We welcome contributions from the open-source community.

Core features

  • 3D data structures
  • 3D data processing algorithms
  • Scene reconstruction
  • Surface alignment
  • 3D visualization
  • Python binding

Supported OSes and compilers

  • Ubuntu 16.04 or later: GCC 4.9 or later Build Status
  • macOS: XCode 8.0 or later Build Status
  • Windows: Visual Studio 2015 update 3 or later Build status
