Curvature analysis?


Super Moderator
Yes - the picture looks like a Gaussian Surface Curvature Analysis.

Search the online Help files for "gaussian" for detailed instructions.

Try using the 3DMaxMin option to redistribute the colors on your surface, although the default options should show more than just blue.

Try clicking the USE MAX/MIN option at the bottom of the color scale.

Or, right-click on the max value and edit it to a larger value (0.01). Change the min value to something smaller (-0.005).

You should see a rainbow of colors on the nose area.

Looks like a pretty bumpy (wavy) surface.

How did you create it? Where did the data come from?
