I am in need of some function generator which helps me generate point
cloud so that i could use it to test my registration algorithm. I am not
sure whether PCL ha some functionality to generate point clouds from some
kind of analytical function : Z = f(x,y) and we have a point cloud of the
form ( x, y, z). Any immediate help would be highly appreciable.
Although it does not directly answer what you asked for, just remember that regardless if you have a symmetrical or asymmetrical point cloud, the moment you add random noise (individually) to your points you’ll immediately break any symmetrical condition you might have, so that can be a strategy to achieve what you want with less effort.
