Multiview-based 3D object detection achieved great success in the past years. However, for some complex models with complex inner structures, the performances of these methods are not satisfactory. This paper provides a method based on slide sampling for 3D object classification. First, we slice and sample the model from the different depths and directions to get the model's features. Then, a deep neural network designed based on the attention mechanism is used to classify the input data. The experiments show that the performance of our method is competitive on ModelNet. Moreover, for some special models with simple surfaces and complex inner structures, the performance of our method is outstanding and stable.
