    Though box_dimensioner_multicam can be used with a single camera, the optimal results will be from a multi-camera setup of two or more cameras, as the program automatically calibrates all attached cameras to the chessboard.  Also, if you use a custom chessboard size then the parameters in the script should be adjusted, as described in the link below. 

    The program is also intended to be a demonstration example and not a commercial standard application.

    An alternative approach to box measuring may be to measure the angles of the box and then calculate the distances from the angles using trigonometry.  Googling for measure distance from angles provides more information about this.  

    The link below features a Python user who was calculating box angles using a RealSense point cloud. 

    In regard to the C++ Measure example program, a RealSense user called soarwing52 created a Python conversion, which they later adapted into a more advanced measuring solution. 

    The code of the original Measure conversion is still available as a standalone script within the larger project though in its separate functions folder.
