How to use the Field Viewer

Objective:

Learn how to use the Field Viewer.

Note:

The Field Viewer, located in the View menu, enables you to preview the values of Implicits and Real Fields.

Procedure:

The Field-Viewer, using a plane in space, displays the distance field from the model’s boundary in the form of radiating white lines. Follow along with a new instance of nTop:

  • Add a Sphere
  • Go to the View tab on the menu bar and then select Field Viewer.
  • A floating window will appear in the viewport.
  • Select the object to analyze by typing the name of the block into the Object input.
  • Determine the location of the field viewer, the resolution of the field, and the millimeter spacing at which the field is sampled.

Instead of loading the Field-Viewer from the View tab, click on the block whose field you want to view and press the hotkey “F”
