How to start and stop spatial mapping?
Is it possible to start and stop spatial mapping repeatedly? I am trying to map a really large space but I only want physics interactions between the holograms and the spatial world in a few interspersed spaces. The idea was to start spatial mapping only a few times to scan these particular places instead of the entire space and create a disjointed mesh. I don't want spatial mapping to be running all the time. Also is this a good strategy?
