    Sketch-Based 3D Object Retrieval (SB3DOR) algorithms retrieve 3D models similar to hand-drawn sketch queries. It is one of the most effective modalities to query 3D models by their shape. However, comparison of a sketch, which is a 2D image, with a 3D model is not straightforward. Most of the...
