Find intersection of a line with the boundary of 3D object (point set)
Wed, 06/22/2022 - 04:41 am
I have two 2D waves, each with 3 columns (x, y, z coords). The first wave is a point set that defines the boundary to an object (irregular but approximately spherical). The second is two points that lie inside the object. What I would like to do is find the distance from each of these two points to the boundary, along the line defined by those two points. I can't figure out how to find the intersect between this line and the boundary defined by the point set. I know how to do this in 2D, but I am confused about the best approach in 3D. Any help appreciated!
