Shaded PointCloud display wish


#1

Somewhere in the r5 beta cycle there was a way to display pointclouds “shaded” which was pretty usefull during the reverse engineering process. Rhino somehow cooked the normals up to display the pointcloud. @Jeff , can you please re-enable this or comment on it ? Has it been removed ?

thanks,

Can Rhino show Point Normals?

If I remember correctly, I think we did some developer level work for this needed by the RhinoTerrain developers. I don’t think any of that ended up in native Rhino display tools.

Hi JB,

I’m shure this feature was in Rhino during the beta cycle, therefore i did remember it. In the SDK i´ve found methods to get and set the normals of pointclouds but unfortunately nothing to cook them up. eg. build an MLS from the points.
