I have implemented a Advancing Front Mesher based on several papers that I am interested in pushing back to PCL. Before I began fully integrating it into PCL I wanted to check and make sure this is something that is of interest to the PCL maintainers?
Full Mesh of the Stanford Bunny
Showing the Curvature plot where the curvature is calculated directly from the Polynomial Surface.
Showing the Triangle quality and mesh adapting to the curvature of the point cloud.
Thanks for your willingness to contribute. I think such an algorithm will fit into the "surface" module of PCL. You may create an issue in the GitHub repository if you want to discuss any details before making a proper pull request.
