TL;DR: I have a fresh Ubuntu on the UP Board of my RDK, R200 plugged and ready to be used (followed Intel RealSense Robotic Development Kit | Developer Journey). All I need is to take a picture and get an OBJ file out of it. Any way at all to do it would be golden, step-by-step please as I'm a complete newbie! Thank you very much.
I'm on a pretty strict deadline for a school project.
I've finished setting up the SR200 from the RDK I ordered (which took a long time!) and am now looking to make a model out of my face with it.
Information on what to do are scattered in bits everywhere, and I don't have time, nor a good enough knowledge of Ubuntu, to face that...
I see two options: download the SDK from Intel that's full but Windows only (done) and run it from Wine (Wine is installed, where do I go from here?)
This should be a pretty complete SDK I should be able to take a picture with. The installation info is extremely cryptic though.
sudo scripts/install_qt.sh(we also need qmake from the full qt5 distribution)
Is not a command. Command not found.
all.procontains librealsense and all example applications
What am I meant to do? Same for the rest of the indications.
For information, I've finished the tutorial the RDK gives you out of the box : Intel RealSense Robotic Development Kit | Developer Journey
That means my Ubuntu version is 16.04.
I have VERY limited knowledge of Ubuntu. I would absolutely love if you could ELI5 ("Explain Like I'm Five") as much as possible so to make sure I don't do anything wrong - step-by-step. I'm not even sure if the options I propose are good for what I want to do now. I'd also like quick indications of what to do once the SDK is set up, if it even is the SDK I'm looking for.
I'm sorry to be asking this much. Information has been very hard to find, and so have been people on the Internet from which I can get quick support who have used Intel Realsense... And, again, I don't have much time at all. I've already wasted a weekend setting up this camera and I feel like screaming.
Thank you very much in advance,
EDIT: Guess I can also try this out: Introduction to Intel® RealSense™ SDK for Linux: Getting Started ...
EDIT 2: Guess not. To clarify again, all I need is to be able to scan a model from my R200. Of my face. The goal is to get some kind of OBJ file in the end.
EDIT 3: Maybe I don't need any SDKs. I'm trying to use RViz, but here are the issues I get:
- The camera has a near clipping plane that makes me unable to get a clear model of my face -- is it changeable?
- Though the terminal doesn't give any error, in RViz, it's as though after 5-10 seconds, the stream just ends. It leaves me with a PointCloud and stops moving. I can Reset it, and it just removes the point cloud.
- Wouldn't be a problem if I could then turn it into a model. But I see no way of doing that!
EDIT 4: This is EXACTLY what I want! But he's installed the camera from his PC, not on the UP Board! Is there a way for me to do that? I do have the USB 3 to USB 2 converter... If this is possible, then that means I wasted my whole weekend for nothing. Please answer quickly as I am getting very stressed!
