The 3D object recognition is usually based on convolutional neural networks. The spatial information of 3D objects is lost due to too many pooling layers used in the process of feature aggregation. To solve the above problem, a convolutional vector network for 3D mesh object recognition is proposed in this paper. Firstly, the surface polynomials are introduced to fit the local mesh of the object, and then the surface shape convolution kernels are clustered. The feature vector of structure-aware is generated by self-measuring the similarity between the local mesh in the object and convolution kernels. The multi-headed attention mechanism module is then employed to achieve feature aggregation from local regions to a larger scale to obtain component-level feature vectors. Finally, the 3D objects are classified through the 3D vector network. The proposed network achieves a high classification accuracy on SHREC10, SHREC11 and SHREC15 datasets. In addition, generalization and robustness of the proposed network are demonstrated through the multi-resolution object comparison experiment and the multi-sampling point comparison experiment.
