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.

How do I obtain the SpatialMapping mesh of the room?

I am using HoloToolkit to Spatially map my environment. I would like to get the mesh that has been detected by the SpatialMapping module of the HoloLens for some processing. How would I obtain the same? I see that there is a SpatialMappingManager.Instance.GetMeshFilters() function that does retrieve some mesh filter objects. If this is the Mesh in question, would it be in World Space coordinates?

  • You can save the mesh from the HoloLens. On the computer enter the IP Address of the HoloLens in a browser window and then in the following location:

    Would there be a method by which we can acquire this through code. For instance, the OBJ file content string of the collective mesh through a function call.

  • I am afraid I am unsure, I am dipping my toes into this myself.

  • I am also interested in getting the spatial mesh by script, I would like to send it through Unet to a computer.
