i just found out by accident that found out by accident that the Comb tool works on Surfaces, not just curves. this is really awesome! i have a little problem though. With curve, i can match the scales and the combs will 'click' together when the curve is G2. with the surfaces, even setting the scales equal doesn't line them up patch to patch. Would you consider making the scale absolute instead of relative to object size? (just a guess)
the fact that the surfaces return the curvature in the surface normal plane makes those combs much more informative for surface diagnostic, and the U/V multi iso is just...wow! can we get U+V as an option too?
The comb plot tool DOESN'T WORK on surfaces for now.
I tried to implement this, but didn't finished the job.
The curvature values that are computed for surfaces are probably wrong, they are the curvatures of the iso-curves, not the surface curvatures.
Maybe I'll try to rework this, but I am not sure to understand all these curvature things ( principal, mean, gaussian, geodesic, etc ... I get confused ).
