Surface Reconstruction

Poisson Reconstruction

Poisson reconstruction based on the Code by Michael Kazhdan and Matthew Bolitho. The plugin requires points with associated normals. It is currently only usable on OpenMesh and SplatCloud based input, but should be easy to extend to other input data types.


This plugin is not part of the free branch yet. You can download the staging package on the download page or via the Daily-Builds. For the source code, check out the staging branch.
