comment calculate surface normal with random sampling of points
Thanks! This is essentially what I am trying to do, but simply fitting a plane seems like a very rough approximation. Is there some way I can use the relationships between the points, such as weighting points that are closer to P higher, or weighting points that are close to each other lower? I an make up some weighting scheme, but ideally I am looking for a method that is based on geometric principles
