Find distance along surface?


Recommended Posts

It computes biharmonic weights directly so probably not. Having said that, you'd likely get the same shape of the biharmonic distance function though although I haven't tried to see if you get any sensible results if you only give a single constraint point of all ones.

EDIT: Actually, scratch that. The node enforces weight normalization (across captured influences) so if you only give a single constraint point, it will just produce a weight of 1 everywhere.

it wouldn´t be too hard to implement but if you need the actual distance along a mesh it´s most probably the geodesic distance what you want. the advantage of using biharmonic distance is that it´s rather smooth but not necessarily exact ...
