I have a node publishing meshes in a pcl_msgs/PolygonMesh typed topic. How can I visualize this in rviz?

I have searched around but can't find a plugin to do it. I could add publishing the mesh as an rviz Marker using the triangle list but was hoping rviz could display the pcl typed message directly.

Did you find a soution, yet? Because I have a similar issue with a TextureMesh.

I haven't tried it yet, but there may be a way.

PCL can save to STL with savePolygonFileSTL which should be usable with RViz.
