pdal/writers_ply 1.8.0

alg install pdal/writers_ply
Writers.Ply
Algorithm Description

The ply writer writes the polygon file format, a common file format for storing three dimensional models. The writer emits points as PLY vertices. The writer can also emit a mesh as a set of faces. filters.greedyprojection and filters.poisson create a mesh suitable for output as faces. This algorithm is ported from the excellent PDAL - Point Data Abstraction Library. For more information please refer to https://pdal.io.
