Map geometric object to the surface of a mesh

General

The tool MapGeometryToMeshSurface adjusts the z-coordinates of geometric points from a given geometry file my_geometry.gml such that they are located on the surface of a given mesh my_mesh.vtu and returns an updated geometry file my_mapped_geometry.gml.

Usage

MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m [my_mesh.vtu] -i [my_geometry.gml] -o [my_mapped_geometry.gml]


Simple application example

Usage for the example:

MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m SubsurfaceMesh.vtu -i TestPolyline.gml -o TestMappedPolyline.gml
