We present a novel method for single-view 3D reconstruction of textured meshes , with a focus to address the primary challenge surrounding texture inference and transfer. Our key observation is that learning textured reconstruction in a structure-aware and globally consistent manner is effective in handling the severe ill-posedness of the texturing problem and significant variations in object pose and texture details. Specifically, we perform structured mesh reconstruction, via a retrieval-and-assembly approach, to produce a set of genus-zero parts parameterized by deformable boxes and endowed with semantic information. For texturing, we first transfer visible colors from the input image onto the unified UV texture space of the deformable boxes. Then we combine a learned transformer model for per-part texture completion with a global consistency loss to optimize inter-part texture consistency. Our texture completion model operates in a VQ-VAE embedding space and is trained end-to-end, with the transformer training enhanced with retrieved texture instances to improve texture completion performance amid significant occlusion. Extensive experiments demonstrate higher-quality textured mesh reconstruction obtained by our method over state-of-the-art alternatives, both quantitatively and qualitatively, as reflected by a better recovery of texture coherence and details.
