Distance calculation
« on: November 08, 2016, 02:12:33 PM »

If I understand correctly,

Code: [Select]
distance_calculator = CalculateSignedDistanceTo3DSkinProcess(skin_model_part, model_part)
The above will create a distance calculator which will calculate the distance (nodal/elemental) of model_part from skin_model_part. And the skin_model_part should contain surface elements from which the distance will be calculated. I want to ask if it is possible to use surface conditions instead of surface elements ?

There is another one which is
Code: [Select]

I should merge the two of them but there are still separated for historical reason.
