How to make a point cloud from a TIN


I want to convert a TIN to a point cloud, is there a way of doing this using
pcl functions?

The reason is I need to downsample the TIN and have no idea how to do this
but I know how to work with point clouds and do it, therefore this
intermediate step to convert from TIN to point cloud, perform a
downsampling and create a new TIN from the downsampled point cloud.

If there is no PCL function to do it, do you think it can be done by simply
calculating the mean of the 3 vertices of the triangle for each dimension?
Would this be correct to do so?
