Figure 2: Three-dimensional model generation pipeline through point clouds, meshes, and texture Maps for three-dimensional scanners. (a) For three-dimensional scanners, the reconstruction process begins with the conversion of the raw data elements into point clouds of geometric samples from the surface of the object. (b) A meshing process then takes place, whereby the points are algorithmically connected to form a manifold surface called a mesh. (c) Next, UV mapping is used to broadcast and map two-dimensional images, called textures, onto the surface of the three-dimensional polygonal mesh in order to faithfully represent the original color of the object scanned
