Detect if 3D point is inside a solid


Recommended Posts

I don't believe there is a 3D equivalent of PtInPoly.


I can think of a couple of possible work arounds. Perhaps someone else will have a better solution.


1. Extract Surfaces from a Top and Elevation view of the volume you are interested in and then use PtInPoly to see if the point is in both. If it is, then you have your answer.


2. If the volume in question is a Solid, then create another small solid and place it at the point in question and Intersect Solids. If you get anything other than a NIL handle returned then the small solid at least partially overlaps with the original solid.


3.  ???  Batter Up!!
