pcl_marching_cubes_reconstruction - pcl_marching_cubes_reconstruction


Syntax is: pcl_marching_cubes_reconstruction input.pcd output.vtk <options>

Compute the surface reconstruction of a point cloud using the marching cubes algorithm (pcl::surface::MarchingCubesHoppe or pcl::surface::MarchingCubesRBF. For more information, use: pcl_marching_cubes_reconstruction -h

where options are:

-grid_res X= the resolution of the grid (cubic grid) (default: 50)

-iso_level X = the iso level of the surface to be extracted (default: 0.000000)

-hoppe X = use the Hoppe signed distance function (MarchingCubesHoppe

-rbf X= use the RBF signed distance function (MarchingCubesRBF

-extend X = the percentage of the bounding box to extend the grid by (default: 0.000000)

-displacement X = the displacement value for the off-surface points (only for RBF) (default: 0.010000)
