Q: We need to export the point cloud data, how should we handle it?
A: Unfortunately we do not support export of data as point cloud.

We support 3 types of data stored in triangular mode:

  1. raw data that your capture while scanning
  2. registered frames
  3. fusions

This data can be displayed in your application in the way you prefer (either points or triangles), but the main idea is that our SDK works with triangles and we can export scans/meshes from SDK as triangles only.

Q: Can I save my model to some specific location?
A: You can use this function call:
ErrorCode ec = artec::sdk::base::io::Stl::save(L"C:\\Users\\admin\\Desktop\\test.stl", outputMesh);
You can check what type of error is returned (if any). For example, you will notified if outputMesh is occasionally empty.

Q: What is outputMesh in terms of C++ language? Is it a class, method or pointer? How should we declare it?
A: Please refer to example called 'simple-capture-sample.cpp'. You can also use TRef<IFrameMesh>.
