It sets the number of sample points to be used for the analysis of each face.

Number of points will affect the accuracy?

 

But in this show number of samples 50 points radius of 3.

Hi,

PhoeNX has correctly stated that the number of samples are the sample points taken on each face.

Yes the accuracy will increase with sample points.

I am attaching an image herewith. You can see that i also get a simmilar result as you by specifying only 1 sample point .But if you do a curvature analysis of the transition blend area then you will find it is not of a constant radius (infact there are very few points on it with the same radius as the other two faces). So when i chose 1 sample point it took the sample point only on that region and includes the 3 rd (transition area) also in the list which is not ok as it is not of a uniform radius value but the FACE RADIUS LIST still shows it with a constant radius as the other two faces so the one with 50 sample points is the accurate one.

Thanks and Best Regards
