Extension Modules: Triangulation

The extension module Triangulation offers the functionality for generating triangle meshes from point clouds (for example 3D scan datasets). This feature allows to reconstruct the surfaces of scanned objects.


  • meshing of partial areas of a point cloud or 3D scan data sets
  • Extensive adjustment possibilities for different triangulation algorithms
  • Rasterized and point exact 2.5D triangulation (depth map)
  • Efficient meshing of laser scan data
  • Creation of closed triangle meshes by healing holes and sparsely occupied regions (Poisson 3D)
  • Meshing of any 3D point data (Marching Cubes 3D)
  • Combine multiple point clouds into a single triangle mesh
