Load dense point cloud as numpy array
« on: December 11, 2017, 05:44:30 PM »
I've created a dense point cloud.

Now i need to store it as [ x,y,z,r,g,b ] column oriented numpy array.

Do do I achieve it?

Hello user,

Currently it is not possible to import the dense cloud from numpy array.

As a workaround in the version 1.4.0 (pre-release) you can save the array as .PTS file and import it using chunk.importPoints() function.

Thanks Alexey ;D, it would be nice to have this feature though. I've already implemented it this way. Even on SSD drives this method is quite slow in case the point cloud is big :-\

Hello user,

We'll see, if any additional functionality could be implemented to API to ease the access to the dense cloud points.
