In order to generate controllable porous structure inside different models, we present a method of transferring the two-dimensional porous pattern to three-dimensional structures in this paper. The porous pattern is consisted of the distribution pattern and filling pattern. A convolutional neural network is used to memorize the distribution pattern, and a pattern transferring process is applied to transfer the two-dimen¬sional distribution to three-dimensional models. Experiments verified that our method can provide an effective mechanism for porous structure design.
