# Generate Point Grid

Genrate a mesh with corresponding test points from a Rhino Brep (or Mesh).

The resulting mesh will be in a format that the "LB Spatial Heatmap" component will accept.

**geometry [Required]**Brep or Mesh from which to generate the points and grid.**grid_size [Required]**Number for the size of the test grid.**offset_dist**Number for the distance to move points from the surfaces of the input _geometry. Typically, this should be a small positive number to ensure points are not blocked by the mesh. (Default: 0).**quad_only**Boolean to note whether meshing should be done using Rhino's defaults (False), which fills the entire _geometry to the edges with both quad and tringulated faces, or a mesh with only quad faces should be generated.FOR ADVANCED USERS: This input can also be a vector object that will be used to set the orientation of the quad-only grid. Note that, if a vector is input here that is not aligned with the plane of the input _geometry, an error will be raised.

**points**Test points at the center of each mesh face.**vectors**Vectors for the normal direction at each of the points.**face_areas**Area of each mesh face.**mesh**Analysis mesh that can be passed to the "LB Spatial Heatmap" component.
