Faster way than rotating through all pts?

    Hi,

    I'm developping a 'tool' plugin (ToolData). I use this tool by clicking on an edge of a mesh. My problem is, how do I know on what edge I clicked? I can iterate through all the points of my mesh and compare the x/y values with the values from my mouse but this would be a lot of calculating for the computer when I'm using the tool with big meshes. Isn't there a faster way doing this (I mean without rotating through all the points of a mesh)?

    Bad humor aside, you might want to consider trying your hand at using the GeRayCollider class. This will only get you a polygon or so, but it at least limits the number of vertices or edges to be searched.

    Lol, that's what happens when you write a message at 3am local time :)

    I am going to take a look at the GeRayCollider class this evening. Thank you for your reply.
