I'm trying to shrink wrap a mesh around a point cloud generated by a laser scanner. Since it's a scan of trees/vegitation, the points are not just on the outer surface but all through the shape (see the example file).
I need to reproduce the general size, shape and locations of trees in an existing place, so I cannot just sketch in some trees. my output needs to be rough blobs approximating the shape of the tree or group of trees. I have run a MeshFromPoints on the clouds but that generates a random jumble of mesh faces.
What I 'll need is to be able to "tune" the shrink wrap's complexity/resolution.
I'm a complete GH newbie and I'm not looking for somebody to do the work for me but -
A) is there a grasshopper solution that gets me close
B) can you point me to some tutorials
C) process many of trees / stands of trees
I hope this describes the problem accurately.
