Creating point cloud

Is it possible to create a point cloud with definable but approximate distance between points on a Nurb surface or a mesh? For example between 2-3 mm distance.


The Populate Geometry component will insert N points, where each new point is placed far away from all previous points. So technically you could remove the youngest points from a collection until the remaining closest pairs are to your liking.

What you really need is a Poisson sampling which is not available in vanilla grasshopper.

You may get somewhere with meshing settings for surfaces, or Dash Pattern for curves though.
