Contour Point Cloud

What is the logic/algorithm used by Contour to create a polyline from a point cloud? Does it search for points within the absolute tolerance from the contour plane, and then use some sort of sorting to order those points and create the polyline from the ordered points?

Hi David - I believe that is about right fir PointCloudSection, which incidentally seems to do a much better job than contour on my test. I’ll see what I can find out - @tim - can you clarify anything here?


Contour works better on the very dense point cloud I’m using which has around 30 million points and is somewhat “noisy”.

Not a critical item, I was more curious than anything.
