This script takes a point cloud and automatically renders a mesh from it. It will take a little while before the resolution is such that it can actually look like the object. Another algorithm is needed, it currently uses the marching cubes algorithm which is too memory intensive. We need to start a project to developing another method like terrain mapping with depth points instead.
“A simple script to begin playing around with live mesh rendering and the Kinect. It takes point data and creates a mesh rendering on the fly in near real time.”
