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.
Downloading offline-captured spatial mapping data over USB
I'm trying to figure out how to access spatial mapping data that is captured on the HoloLens and transfer it to my computer via USB so I can manipulate it in Unity. I do not want to use wi-fi through the emulator or USB through the Device Portal to record the data in real-time, as the area I'm scanning is very large so wi-fi is not available everywhere and being tethered by a 3 foot USB cable won't work. Does anyone know how to store and download spatial mapping data from the HoloLens in this way?
