3D Modelling: Point Cloud to 3D Mesh

3D Modelling: Point Cloud to 3D Mesh

In this 3D Tutorial, we learn how to create stunning 3D meshes from point clouds using Python and 3D Modelling techniques. We focus on how to use the popular Python library Open3D best to create a 3D mesh from a point cloud. We also cover how to visualize the mesh using CloudCompare or MeshLab.

My 3D Recommendation 🍉

Turning 3D Point Clouds into 3D Meshes is an integral cog of a lot of different workflows. While some software offers you the possibility to do just that very simply without any coding knowledge when you need more flexibility, there is no alternative: we need to leverage programming. But the good news is that 3D Python is a great way to enter the realm of programming while quickly getting amazing results as we get here. If you want to extend this branch, I warmly recommend following up the 3D crash course: 3D Python Crash Course.
