Version 1.0.0 (1.25 KB) by Ayad Al-Rumaithi
Finds the shortest distance between a triangle and a point in 3d space.
Updated 20 Jan 2023
This function finds the shortest distance between a triangle and a point in 3d space using nonlinear constrained optimization.
vt1 is (3*1) coordinate vector for the first vertex of the triangle.
vt2 is (3*1) coordinate vector for the second vertex of the triangle.
vt3 is (3*1) coordinate vector for the third vertex of the triangle.
vp is (3*1) coordinate vector of the point.
d is the shortest distance between the triangle and the point.
