This paper presents a novel method for 3D model retrieval combining the content-based retrieval and the text-based retrieval. Algorithm merges the content-based retrieval and the text-based retrieval through the sample library. The user only need to enter a keyword and the algorithm will search the 3D models with a keyword in the database. It will automatically select the sample for the user to retrieve the 3D models without any keyword. Experimental results demonstrated the efficiency and performance of the proposal algorithm.
