Does the line intersect the patch surface ?

Subject: Does the line intersect the patch surface ?

Hello everyone,

I am struggling to find a method by which I can know "whether a given line identified by two points on it, intersects a surface generated by the patch command" ? Is there a way out already in MATLAB or are there any work around ?

Thanks,
Sairam

Did you find a way out? If not, maybe this will help.

Hello Sairam,

I am curious as to if you ever resolved this issue. I am attempting to do the same thing right now, and was browsing the forum for potential advice. Let me know if you were able to determine the intersection of a line with a patch object!

Thanks,
Paul
