The reconstruction of 3D models out of image data plays an important role in many research areas. Previous work has brought fully automatic or semi-automatic algorithms for extracting 3D data out of multiple images or videos. The output is usually a 3D point cloud, which is a big challenge when further manipulation of the scanned object, such as modeling and texturing, is needed. The goal of this master thesis is the research on methods for creating simple geometry out of such initial data. In the process of the work a modeling tool will be implemented, which enables users to integrate polyhedral primitives in a 3D point dataset. Being assisted by optimization techniques, the user shall be able to simplify such a 3D point cloud to a combination of basic geometric objects, which allow an easy manipulation in further tasks.
