This implementation uses Python 3.6, Pytorch1.1.0, cudatoolkit 9.0. We recommend to use conda to deploy the environment.

  • Install with conda:

    conda env create -f environment.yml
    conda activate Total3D
  • Install with pip:

    pip install -r requirements.txt


The pretrained model can be download here. We also provide the pretrained Mesh Generation Net here. Put the pretrained models under


A demo is illustrated below to see how the method works. vtk is used here to visualize the 3D scenes. The outputs will be saved under 'demo/outputs'. You can also play with your toy with this script.

cd Total3DUnderstanding
python configs/total3d.yaml --mode demo --demo_path demo/inputs/1

Data preparation

In our paper, we use SUN-RGBD to train our Layout Estimation Net (LEN) and Object Detection Net (ODN), and use Pix3D to train our Mesh Generation Net (MGN).

Preprocess SUN-RGBD data

You can either directly download the processed training/testing data [link] to (recommended)



1. Download the raw SUN-RGBD data to

2. Download the 37 class labels of objects in SUN RGB-D images [link] to
3. Follow this work to download the preprocessed clean data of SUN RGB-D [link] to
4. Follow this work to download the preprocessed ground-truth of SUN RGB-D [link], and put the '3dlayout' and 'updatedrtilt' folders respectively to ``` data/sunrgbd/Dataset/3dlayout data/sunrgbd/Dataset/updatedrtilt
5. Run below to generate training and testing data in 'data/sunrgbd/sunrgbd_train_test_data'.
python utils/ ```    If everything goes smooth, a ground-truth scene will be visualized like


Preprocess Pix3D data

You can either directly download the preprocessed ground-truth data [link] to (recommended)

Each sample contains the object class, 3D points (sampled on meshes), sample id and object image (w.o. mask). Samples in the training set are flipped for augmentation.


  1. Download the Pix3D dataset to
  2. Run below to generate the train/test data into 'data/pix3d/traintestdata'
    python utils/

Training and Testing

We use the configuration file (see 'configs/****.yaml') to fully control the training/testing process. There are three subtasks in Total3D (layout estimation, object detection and mesh reconstruction). We first pretrain each task individually followed with joint training.

  1. Switch the keyword in 'configs/total3d.yaml' between ('layoutestimation', 'objectdetection') as below to pretrain the two tasks individually. ``` train: phase: 'layoutestimation' # or 'objectdetection'

python configs/total3d.yaml --mode train

The two pretrained models can be correspondingly found at 
out/total3d/afoldernamedwithscripttime/modelbest.pth ```
  1. Train the Mesh Generation Net by:
    python configs/mgnet.yaml --mode train
    The pretrained model can be found at
Joint training

List the addresses of the three pretrained models in 'configs/total3d.yaml', and modify the phase name to 'joint' as ``` weight: ['foldertolayoutestimation/modelbest.pth', 'foldertoobjectdetection/modelbest.pth', 'foldertomeshrecon/modelbest.pth']

train: phase: 'joint'

Then run below for joint training.
python configs/total3d.yaml --mode train
The trained model can be found at
out/total3d/afoldernamedwithscripttime/modelbest.pth ```

Please make sure the weight path is renewed as

weight: ['folder_to_fully_trained_model/model_best.pth']
and run
python configs/total3d.yaml --mode test

This script generates all 3D scenes on the test set of SUN-RGBD under


You can also visualize a 3D scene given the sample id as

python utils/ --result_path out/total3d/a_folder_named_with_script_time/visualization --sequence_id 274
Differences to the paper
  1. We retrained the model with the learning rate decreases to half if there is no gain within five steps, which is much more efficient.
  2. We do not provide the Faster RCNN code. Users can train their 2D detector with [link].
