Depth data to obj format

May 31, 2012 at 4:15 PM

Hello everyone,

I am quite new in pykinect programing.. For a personal project, I am trying to create a kind of 3D scanner: i would like to create an obj format from the depth data.

Based on the I manage to store a depth frame into a numpy.array, but I really do not have a lot of idea for transforming the obtained data into obj format?

Does anyone have any idea to solve this problem?

It sounds like you're after an algorithm for extracting faces and vertices (I assume that's what the obj format is based on) from depth data.

I don't have one handy (I'm not even sure it's a completely solved problem) so you'll have to do some research. There are sure to be forums out there for this sort of modeling where they can help you more.
