Pytorch Implementation of Various Point Transformers
Recently, various methods applied transformers to point clouds: PCT: Point Cloud Transformer (Meng-Hao Guo et al.), Point Transformer (Nico Engel et al.), Point Transformer (Hengshuang Zhao et al.). This repo is a pytorch implementation for these methods and aims to compare them under a fair setting. Currently, all three methods are implemented, while tuning their hyperparameters.

Using Adam with learning rate decay 0.3 for every 50 epochs, train for 200 epochs; data augmentation follows this repo. For Hengshuang and Nico, initial LR is 1e-3 (maybe fine-tuned later); for Menghao, initial LR is 1e-4, as suggested by the author. ModelNet40 classification results (instance average) are listed below:
Some code and training settings are borrowed from https://github.com/yanx27/Pointnet_Pointnet2_pytorch. Code for PCT: Point Cloud Transformer (Meng-Hao Guo et al.) is adapted from the author’s Jittor implementation https://github.com/MenghaoGuo/PCT.
