i tried to use
_PointDeviation with a mesh for the pointset and really would like to express my wish to have a way to disable the automatic update of the command. My mesh has 600K polygons, if i start
_PointDeviation it takes 2 minutes before the dialog comes up.
It opens with some default values which, of course, need adjustment. To see what i want, i first have to disable “hair” display which obscures the view. After waiting another 2 minutes i can start entering my values for “Good point”, “Bad point” and “Ignore”. Between each edit i have to wait 2 minutes as it likes to update automatically. In case of entering decimal values in the fields, it starts the calculation even when i entered the first numer of eg 0.5. I do not see anything useful that i get an update of the deviation display once i entered zero and again after i entered a decimal point.
To get my preview with the required values it took almost 10 minutes of waiting. Please disable automatic calculation and hair display by default and provide a checkbox to enable automatic display, along with the “Apply” button used in V5. Otherwise this command is really impossible to use with large pointsets or meshes.
Btw. when pressing the button “End”, it hangs for another 2 minutes until i can get back to Rhino. This seems to be a bug.
