Topo point

Hello All,
Topo points.skp (360.5 KB)
Can someone please point me in the right direction?

I have the attached topo points which I wish to make into a tangible topo surface.
There must be a plugin for this somewhere. All the points are separate components and are made up from across.

Any help would be much appreciated.

All the “topo points” are components made up of two edges. They should intersect (to form four edges) but currently somehow don’t.
But their “intersection” is at the component’s local origin. You need to find a way to get a real guidepoint at the local origin and then get rid of these two (four) edges.
There are plugins that can handle pointclouds from guidepoints to create a (curved) surface out of them.

Also see this thread (as an example): How to make topography from points

Hi !

Maybe you could be interested by POINT GADGET

I exploded the components and used the native Sandbox from Contours tool + a bit of cleanup. No plugins.
