NVIDIA Omniverse Kaolin App Now Available for 3D Deep Learning Researchers

3D deep learning researchers can enter NVIDIA Omniverse and simplify their workflows with the Omniverse Kaolin app, now available in open beta.

The Omniverse platform provides researchers, developers, and engineers with the ability to virtually collaborate and work between different software applications. Omniverse Kaolin is an interactive application that acts as a companion to the NVIDIA Kaolin library, helping 3D deep learning researchers accelerate their process.

The Kaolin app leverages the Omniverse platform, USD format and RTX rendering to provide interactive tools that allow visualizing 3D outputs of any deep learning model as it is training, inspecting 3D datasets to find inconsistencies and gain intuition, and rendering large synthetic datasets from collections of 3D data.

Omniverse Kaolin enables users to reduce the time needed to develop AI research for a wide range of 3D applications.


The Omniverse Kaolin Training Visualizer extension allows interactive visualization of 3D checkpoints exported using Kaolin Library python API. By scrubbing through iterations, researchers can see the progression of training over time, and visualize multiple textures and labels that may be predicted for each 3D model. 

The 3D checkpoints can include meshes, point clouds and voxel grids in any number of categories, with multiple textures and labels supported for meshes. The extension also allows creating and saving custom layouts for visualizing results consistently across experiments. 


The performance of machine learning models can depend heavily on the properties of the training data. The Omniverse Kaolin Dataset Visualizer extension allows sampling and visualizing batches from 3D datasets to gain intuition and identify problems that can hinder learning.


Many machine learning techniques rely on images and ground truth labels for training, and synthetic data is a powerful tool to support such applications. The Omniverse Kaolin Data Generator extension uses NVIDIA RTX ray and path tracing to render massive image datasets from a collection of 3D data, while also exporting custom ground truth labels from a variety of sensors.
