Abstract. In recent years, Supervised Neural Networks have been used to solve different tasks due to their ability

to extract and predict patterns. This kind of algorithm has in its development a first step known as the training

phase, where it tries to find the best values for the weights and biases, making the neural net predictions as close

as possible to some expected outputs. In each training iteration, updating weights and biases is realized like an

optimization problem. When developing a Neural Network that uses Spherical Harmonics Functions (SPH) for

reconstructing the 3D shape of a particle from its 2D projections, one can choose as objective function different

parameters, e.g., the volume, radius, the SPH coefficients, etc. In this paper, we discuss the performance of a

Neural Network trained with different loss functions in a 3D shape reconstruction problem context.
