Using HoloLens as 3D Scanner - with texture output?

Can we extract spatial mesh with a mapped texture? Is there an app that would work as a 3D scanner like that already available to download / purchase? I have only found this project https://github.com/ywj7931/Hololens_Image_Based_Texture
but the result is not optimal.

    There is an called spacecatcher that will export your spatial mesh as an OBJ file - but it has some limitations. You can also get the OBJ from the developer portal. To apply a texture you will really need to put the obj file through something like 3DS Max.

  • In the version 2.5 of SpaceCatcher you can take pictures within HoloLens and use it as RGB texture.
