  • You have a long road ahead of you if you have no previous knowledge of computer vision or programming experience. Kinect for Windows only provides depth and color data from the sensor. How you process this into a usable model is the task of a third party library or program.

    Kinect for Windows SDK provides a Kinect Fusion library that takes the color/depth data and can export that into a 3D mesh format. Have a look at the Kinect Fusion samples that come with the Kinect for Windows toolkit. We only provide support for the api's provided in the SDK any programming questions, would need to be directed base on language, UI framework and topic.
