Single-view point cloud is the most commonly type of raw 3D data. Previous studies have focused on the object classification problem, and a few studies have been concerned with segmenting and labeling the semantic parts of single-view point cloud. In this paper, we propose a new method to solve the point cloud semantic part segmentation problem via annotation transference. First, we established a database of 3D synthetic CAD models. Taking a single-view point cloud as input, we retrieved the matching models from the database. Using the point-level correspondences, we transferred the annotations onto the input. We performed experiments on two public benchmarks and one raw scanned dataset. Compared to five other state-of-the-art methods, our method achieves a comparable accuracy with a low cost.
