Hi all,

I tried to use this tool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTRHP... and with my own generated .pcd map. For some reason when I import it in Unity I cannot see the .pcd file i imported. (it even has 0 verts 0 tris). It does work with Autoware's .pcd files tho.

Try changing your pcd file to binary format, it might be ASCII.

Thanks, a format conversion from pcd to binary pcd was necessary. I used pcl library to convert but apparently it can be done using Autoware's GUI.

@cassini.huygens How can we do it by using Autoware's GUI??

go to 'map' tab use 'Ref' to choose which .pcd you want to binarize then use 'PCD Binarizer' and choose your point type.
