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.

I am having trouble with SurfaceMeshesToPlanes as it can't seem to see the doors in my room. Did anyone else experience this an found a solution? I would really like to see into the next room when having materials attached to the SurfacePlanes.
Thanks in advance

edit: I am Talking about opened doors. So basically holes in the wall.

    I don't think that the SurfaceMeshesToPlanes script has that functionality available. I don't think it can determine the difference between a wall and a door. The types it can distinguish are: Walls, Floors, Ceilings, Tables, and Unknown.

    *Where unknown is typically a flat surface but, has a shape other than a rectangle. Usually things like round tables fall under the unknown plane type.

    Hi @dbarrett ,
    thanks for your answer. I think the Unknown does not even need to be a flat surface but anything else than the other types.

    Just to point out my problem: I am not talking about a closed door. It is basically a hole in the wall is being recognized as part of the wall surface. If I visualize the spatial mapping mesh, I can see that it is not scanned as part of the wall(). But the SurfaceMeshesToPlanes ignores that hole.
