I was busy with my office work (totally unrelated from all this, and that is also interesting), so just to take a break from there, I am jumping to all this. Not exactly but ... life goes on
Still exploring on how to convert point cloud to mesh.
  •!topic/openkinect/0qSRx8f9KPc is mostly referring to pcl libraries like surface reconstruction etc., and is also a while back. I should invest on these:-
    • I have explored answers.ros
      • May be need to explore a bit more.
      • Issue with this is all data is old, so I guess I should explore PCL. BUt that will come after exploring the MeshLab. This I need to do anyway.
    • Explore how to do this in MeshLab
      • At this link: I found that .asc files could be used. They seems like the mesh file. They use three points to form a triangle. Say point 1,2,3. Then next triangle is formed by set of points 2,3 and 4. Then 3,4 and 5 and so on...
      • May be I should post it to MeshLab forum. Posted at:
      • Also now I should see PLY and OBJ format.
      • Both these formats are for polygon, so it seems there is no way to represent only point cloud in MeshLab. Abandoning that.
    • PCL libraries
      • Before starting investigate, I know that they are there. :-)
      • Here: it has been explained step by step but again it is not mentioned how to open the pcd file in Meshlab. I tried installing the latest build of meshlab but am getting a compilation error, which I am unable to debug further.
        • /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ljhead
        • collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
      • I posted my question at:
