MeshClosestMeshPoint Method

Gets the point on the mesh that is closest to a given test point. Similar to the ClosestPoint function except this returns a MeshPoint class which includes extra information beyond just the location of the closest point.

Namespace:  Rhino.Geometry
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
Syntax
public MeshPoint ClosestMeshPoint(
	Point3d testPoint,
	double maximumDistance
)

Parameters

testPoint
Type: Rhino.GeometryPoint3d
The source of the search.
maximumDistance
Type: SystemDouble
Optional upper bound on the distance from test point to the mesh. If you are only interested in finding a point Q on the mesh when testPoint.DistanceTo(Q) < maximumDistance, then set maximumDistance to that value. This parameter is ignored if you pass 0.0 for a maximumDistance.

Return Value

Type: MeshPoint
closest point information on success. null on failure.
