What the SDK Doesn't Do

Below, we highlight a few things the SDK doesn't do.

  1. The SDK doesn't show step-by-step results while you're processing the captured data. It also doesn't allow you to display intermediate results in a 3D-view window.
  2. The resulting model is a triangle 3D mesh, not a point cloud in the explicit sense of this term. Technically, you can render the mesh in your software as "points in vertices," but it still remains a polygonal mesh.
  3. Several algorithms are unavailable in the SDK:
    • Real-time fusion
    • Smoothing
  4. The SDK lacks the interactive modification tools that you may have used in Artec Studio. Thus, it does not support the following:
    • Editor brushes
    • Measurements
