Last year we presented the influence of pose on threedimensional (3-D) shape classification in the context of a repeatability study. Meaning, that the subjects are repeatedly scanned 10 times and they attempt to assume the same pose each time. It was shown that changes due to a slight pose modification had no detrimental effects for shape classification. This paper discuss a second set of experiments, designed to test the stability of the geometric search engine in more extreme cases. The pose of the subjects between the scans are modified substantially, with an increasing amount of differences compared to the CAESAR protocol. Experimental results will be presented and discussed.
