Varying density mesh from point cloud

stubbybubby
Hi,

I'm a relatively new PCL Library user and have a question regarding "meshing" of a simple point cloud.

I want to be able to create a mesh with a varying number of vertices depending on certain conditions. I had a play with some of the already implemented meshing methods (Triangulations) but could only produce meshs with >100 vertices or so which is too dense / detailed for what I want.

I was hoping to produce a mesh with say 10 vertices or so initially. Then a more detailed mesh with approximately 25 - 30 vertices.

If someone could give me a hand or point me in the right direction, that would be great.

Cheers.

Hi,

You could play around with the Poisson meshing, and you can vary the density of your mesh using the depth parameter.

Cheers,
Alex
