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 to gather spatial mapping data in the limited area?

Good morning to all developers!

I have one idea for using the HoloLens on the construction sites . Based on the fact where the HoloLens is going to be using, ...

... sometimes we don't really need to scan all environment around us because, for example, we want only to work in the area which measures 15x15 metres. One way to get around this is to set those limits by the HoloToolkit Linear in the very beginning when that application will start. And I want my HoloLens to scan the environment only in that place to avoid the distracting amount of meshes which is located out of that limited area around me which I'm not really going to use.

Have you some thoughts about this idea? Does it really seems to be useful? I think, that it's possible to find better decision with feedback which this HoloLens Forum provides. I'm really open for you to answer and discuss.

Thanks a lot,
