Using DelaunayMesh to generate aj object from 3D scanner’s data

I have read a lot about delaunay triangulation.  Suddenly I realized that there was a class like that on away3d.  Great news!    But when I tried to use this class I noted that I need to pass a planetype to generate the mesh.  I don’t understand at all what is that parameter.  In fact, I even don’t know if this class could help me in my project.

The thing what I want is just create a mesh starting a 3d scanner’s data which is just a point cloud.  Could DelaunayMesh be the class what I have been looking for in order to get a mesh from a lot of “random” points?

the class was designed to generate a mesh form a cloud of points on a plane.
This class needs an update, one to allow support holes (from bitmap input or distance for instance for face validation) and indeed clouds from scanner. Tho, to make it work for clouds it should not be that complex, you simply need to change the circle lookup to sphere.

Ore just use normal scanning software like Artec studio and export meshes and point clouds and whatever else.
