RulerOp

Visualization and measurement capabilities are applied to a surface.

Inputs

The Input Surface is evaluated for visual inspection.

Parameters

The Ortho Grid draws three orthogonal planes perpendicular to the X, Y, Z world planes. These are either the three planes Behind Object or the three planes in front of it.

The Cross Grid draws cross sections of the input, also perpendicular to the world planes. The ortho and cross grids use the same grid spacing.

The Base controls the dynamic grid spacing. The default 'base 10' spacing specifies decimal grid steps. The spacing will exponentially adjust as the view point is adjusted. The intent is that the grid is neither too dense to read nor too sparse to judge.

A non-zero Excess will expand the bounding box used for the ortho grid.
