Title: Surface Modeling
Post by: TRWebster on October 12, 2009, 02:23:51 PM
After reading other posts, I finally can import points using ImportPoints, but I can't do much with them.  In particular, I want to create contours, but that and half the other choices are greyed out all of the time.  I can create triangles, but that's about it.  What's the secret to getting the functionality promised by the add-in?  I'd also like to see the notes and/or z-data adjacent to the points (but preferably on a different layer).  Is that possible?

Hi, the key is to have a set of triangles set as the "active surface" then all will be ungreyed.
 
To create the triangles, just select your points and click "create triangles."

If you have a free Yugma account then I can demenstrate.

I will create a movie and post it soon.
