Abstract We introduce the Clutterpalette, an interactive tool for detailing indoor scenes with small-scale items. When the user points to a location in the scene, the Clutterpalette suggests detail items for that location. In order to present appropriate suggestions, the Clutterpalette is trained on a dataset of images of real-world scenes, annotated with support relations. Our experiments demonstrate that the adaptive suggestions presented by the Clutterpalette increase modeling speed and enhance the realism of indoor scenes.

Keywords: interactive 3D modeling, scene modeling, scene understanding, indoor scenes, modeling tools, suggestive user interfaces
