The package **alphashape3d** presents the implementation
in R of the **alpha-shape** of a finite set of points in
the **three-dimensional** space. This geometric structure
generalizes the convex hull and allows to recover the shape of
non-convex and even non-connected sets in 3D, given a random sample of
points taken into it. Besides the computation of the alpha-shape, the
package **alphashape3d** provides users with functions to
compute the volume of the alpha-shape, identify the connected components
and facilitate the three-dimensional graphical visualization of the
estimated set.
