Is there a way to visualize a custom surface in Rviz by specifying the vertices ? For example, I have 4 point (obtained from a point cloud) and I would like to see on Rviz the surface having those points as vertices.

Thank you very much!

You can publish the surface (or arbitrary geometry) as a couple of triangles using an rviz Marker triangle list

This has some example python marker publishing code, the C++ isn't that different.
