Sample Nearest Surface Node

Sample Nearest Surface node.

The Sample Nearest Surface node finds values at the closest points on the surface of a source mesh geometry. Non-face attributes are interpolated across the surface.

This node is similar to the Geometry proximity, but it gives the value of any attribute at the closest surface point, not just its position.

Warning

Because the node samples the surface of a mesh rather than its edges or vertices, values from loose points and edges are ignored.

Inputs

Mesh

The geometry to retrieve the attribute from.

Value

A field to evaluate on the Source geometry for use with the transfer method.

Sample Position

The position to start from when finding the closest location on the target mesh. By default, this is the same as if the Position was connected.

Properties

Data Type

The data type to use for the retrieved values.

Outputs

Value

The data retrieved and interpolated from the Source geometry, mapped based on the nodes settings and inputs.
