Measuring distance between two points

Recommended Posts

Hi. I started using Houdini two days back. I come from architecture background. I have used Rhinoceros 3D and Grasshopper extensively in the last two years. So I have some experience in node-based workflow. One thing I cannot find in Houdini is to how to measure distance between two points. 


For example, there are two cuboids placed side by side with a little gap between them. I want to measure the distance from any vertex of first cuboid to the vertex of another one. How do I do it?

Drop down an attribute wrangle and pipe the first cuboid into the first input and the second cuboid into the second input and type the following into the wrangle:

f@dist = distance(@P, @opinput1_P);

That will give you a distance attribute on each point
