How to create evenly distributed points on a surface

Objective:

To create evenly distributed points on a surface

Applies to:

  • Even Latticing

Solution:

This article uses a Custom Block to create our desired outcome. If you are new to using Custom Blocks, learn how to import, modify, and update them with the following resources:

1. This Custom Block runs off of a few required inputs. A few things to note about these are:

  • The mesh input must be a surface mesh of the body. 
  • A unit must be specified in the point spacing input.
  • The relaxation iterations input controls the number of iterations that are run to evenly distribute the points
  • The random seed input specifies the seed value. Each seed value is essentially a different layout of the points.
