Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

More than 1200 triangles per qubic meter

We have created a app which use the special mapping and compare the quality of scan with 200tpqm and 1200tpqm. The standard is 500.

It looks like a the certain point the quality of mesh is not improving. 1200 seems to be the limit.

See the app in action:

Any idea?

  • Hi Angela,

    Thank you for the response, this would be good to know in the documentation, because in the DirectX/C++ example it alludes to the fact that these numbers represent how many vertices you can build per cubic meter, not a range. I spent some time wrestling with this myself. Now that you explain it this way this does align with how the sample works. I do notice about 3 basic levels of detail on complex surfaces.

  • Hello, any improvements in terms of scanning LOD of the mesh? Is the 2000 still maximum value?
