MeshLab is an open source software for processing interactive 3D models. It contains a score of tools for editing, testing, converting and rendering 3D meshes. It also includes a tool for the registration of multiple range maps based on the iterative closest point algorithm. MeshLab includes an interactive direct paint-on-mesh system that allows to change the color of the mesh. This tutorial will cover the installation procedure of MeshLab in Ubuntu.
To start the installation procedure, first add the repository by executing the following command.
root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# add-apt-repository ppa:zarquon42/meshlab actual snapshot of meshlab (packaged, when I find time) More info: https://launchpad.net/~zarquon42/+archive/ubuntu/meshlab Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpetjdrewc/secring.gpg' created gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmpetjdrewc/pubring.gpg' created gpg: requesting key 5BF00518 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com gpg: /tmp/tmpetjdrewc/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created gpg: key 5BF00518: public key "Launchpad PPA for zarquon42" imported gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1) OK
The repository is added to the system. Update the local repository index by running the apt-get update command.

The target system is updated with the required repos. Now install MeshLab by executing the following apt-get install command.
root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# apt-get install meshlab Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done … … … Setting up libqt5xmlpatterns5:amd64 (5.2.1-3) ... Setting up meshlab (2016.12~trusty2) ... Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.19-0ubuntu6.9) ...
The application is successfully installed in the target system. Open the application installed, execute the meshlab command.
The MeshLab contains a range of Render options.
The edit option in the menu contains the Meshlab tools.
It also contains a range of filters for 3D mesh.
The About MeshLab option gives the version and other information of the meshlab.
Wasn't that an easy installation procedure? MeshLab includes a tool for the registration of multiple range maps based on the iterative closest point algorithm.
