I have been learning to use and using MeshLab for about a month now; my application is visualizing atomic force microscopy data. I would like to thank the developers for freely sharing this fantastic tool. The interface works well, the trackball idea is excellent and I like the search tool for finding filters. There is a large number of filters, most of which I don't fully understand. There are flaws, however, such as a lack of documentation and frequent crashes. Both of which could be easily remedied given sufficient time. But that is the problem isn't it? The videos were a great start to providing tutorials, but that effort seems to have run out of steam. Overall, the software is well worth downloading and learning to use. I look forward to further improvements.
The intentions are good, but the result is a bloated mess of unfinished filters. I am sad to say that I had a hard time finding a filter that did not cause the program to crash. My impression is that the authors and audience are academics interested in the algorithms, and knowing what to give them, and especially not to give them. Creating robust software for ordinary users has clearly not been a priority.
Great performance, disgusting user interface!
Helpful but there is no instructions. Is there a manual or web source for how to use? Video is not enough. Thank you. Anders
Very good for decimating mesh. Takes good care of the original shape when simplifying a mesh.
Good project with lot of features!
