### Point Spacing

The *Point Spacing* tool calculate the average length of the edges connected to a point in a mesh/UGrid or scatter set.

This operation is the inverse of the process of *scalar paving* in Mesh Generation and the result could be thought of as a *size* function (often referred to as *nodal spacing* functions).

The size function could then be smoothed to generate a size function for a mesh with improved mesh quality.

#### Input parameters

*Target grid*– This is a required input parameter. Specify which grid/mesh the point spacing dataset will be created for.

#### Output parameters

*Output dataset*– Enter the name for the point spacing dataset.
