I thought that was really cool. Scanners like that actually exist today. (They are not the size of a golf ball, like the scanner in the movie was, but the principal is the same.)
In my previous post, Creating a Better Documentation Experience, I covered highlights of our online documentation. This time we will dive into search methods, categories and navigation.
In my last post I constructed a thin walled 3D body of a teapot from surface data using surfacing operations. Whilst the code I used worked it was more complicated than I expected when I started, so I took a second look at the workflow. Once again here is the description of the input data:
