Point Set Deviation
The PointDeviation command uses colored line hairs to visualize the distance between geometry objects.
Measured objects can be point objects, point clouds, curves, polylines, surfaces, polysurfaces, extrusions, and meshes.
Point objects, mesh vertices, and cloud points are directly used to measure. Analysis mesh vertices are used for other object types.
Target objects can be curves, surfaces, polysurfaces, extrusions, and meshes.
Point Deviation options
Run the PointDeviation command to start a new measurement.
Stop measuring the current objects.
Points beyond this distance are ignored.
Points beyond this distance are colored red or ignored.
Points closer than this distance are colored blue.
Points on the surface are colored blue.
Points qualify for display if the hair line is this close to the normal direction on either the curve or the surface. Default is 1 degree. No points disqualify at 180.
The hair is exaggerated by this factor from the actual distance to the curve or surface. Default is 10.
Display the hair line for each qualifying point.
Create a line object when the command terminates. Line objects are created on layers with names "Point Test <color>".
Update the hair display interactively when options are changed.
Update the hair display manually when Automatically apply changes is disabled.
The number of points.
The mean distance between the selected points and the target object.
The median distance between the selected points and the target object.
The standard deviation distance between the selected points and the target object.
The distance from the farthest point to the target object.
The distance from the nearest point to the target object.
Copies the statistics to Clipboard.
Displays or hides the Point Deviation panel, or change its visibility.
Specifies how many sample points to spread along a measured curve to evaluate deviation.
