alphashape3d: Implementation of the 3D alpha-shape for the reconstruction of 3D sets from a point cloud

The package alphashape3d presents the implementation in R of the alpha-shape of a finite set of points in the three-dimensional space. This geometric structure generalizes the convex hull and allows to recover the shape of non-convex and even non-connected sets in 3D, given a random sample of points taken into it. Besides the computation of the alpha-shape, the package alphashape3d provides users with functions to compute the volume of the alpha-shape, identify the connected components and facilitate the three-dimensional graphical visualization of the estimated set.
