I'm looking for a way to get the 3d vertex information extracted from a blender .ply file and generate a 3d closed surface object. I tried the following code:
%Load .ply file
ptCloud = pcread('monkey.ply');
%Acess the 3D vertex coordinates
coordinates=ptCloud.Location; x=double(coordinates(:,1)); y=double(coordinates(:,2)); z=double(coordinates(:,3));
%Generate a delaunay triangulation from 3d vertex coordinates
DT = delaunayTriangulation(x,y,z);
[T,Xb] = freeBoundary(DT); TR = triangulation(T,Xb);
P = incenter(TR); F = faceNormal(TR);
trisurf(T,Xb(:,1),Xb(:,2),Xb(:,3), ... 'FaceColor','cyan','faceAlpha',0.8); axis equal hold on quiver3(P(:,1),P(:,2),P(:,3), ... F(:,1),F(:,2),F(:,3),0.5,'color','r');
The result related to the above code is represented by the attached figure (a), but the desired result would be (b).
