I'm using the kinect to scan soil erosion and vegetation and I've been using a little the Nerei/kinfu_remake github repositori. It can export 3D captures to a .obj and a .vrml files. However, these files were written to the Visualization Toolkit. I've never worked with VTK and I really would't like to spend time to learn a new library. I don't have time to do that. I've been looking
different ways to read and export them to a .ply o .pcd file but didn't find anything that can help me. So, is there a module in PCL that can do this?? or other way that I've never seen??
Usage: pcl_converter [OPTION] SOURCE DEST
Convert SOURCE point cloud or mesh to DEST.
Available formats types for SOURCE and DEST:
PCD (Point Cloud Library)
PLY (Polygon File Format)
VTK (The Visualization Toolkit)
-f, --format Specify DEST output type, available formats are ascii, binary and binary_compressed.
When not specified, binary is used as default.
OBJ only supports ascii format.
binary_compressed is only supported by the PCD file format.
-c --cloud Output DEST as a point cloud, delete all faces.
