Shape similarity assessment is a fundamental geometric reasoning problem that finds application in several different product design and manufacturing applications. A computationally efficient way to assess shape similarity is to first abstract 3D object shapes into shape signatures and use shape signatures to perform similarity assessment. Several different types of shape signatures have been developed in the past. This paper provides a survey of existing algorithms for computing and comparing shape signatures. Our survey consists of a description of the desired properties of shape signatures, a scheme for classifying different types of shape signatures, and descriptions of representative algorithms for computing and comparing shape signatures. This survey concludes by identifying directions for future research.
