Meshlab Plugins

To make our research accessible to practitioners in the field, we have developed plugins in the popular open source mesh processing software Meshlab. Currently this includes the Virtual Goniometer from our recent preprint. More plugins will be available soon.

There are currently two ways to access our plugins.

  1. Download and run the DMG installer for MacOS. After installing the DMG, you may have to open Meshlab for the first time from Finder->Applications by right clicking and selecting "open". You will get a message "macOS cannot verify the developer of meshlab. Are you sure you want to open it?". Click Open anyway. This is only necessary the first time you open Meshlab after installing from the DMG.
  2. Compile the plugins with Meshlab from the Source Code. The code can be compiled in Linux, MacOS, and Windows.

We are working to have our plugins included in the official Meshlab distribution in the future.

The documentation for our Meshlab plugins is available here.

If you use our plugins in your research, please cite our paper:
