Creates a series of segments across the input path, measures the average surface height on each of the segments, and creates the final profile from that values.

Name Type Range Description
inSurface Surface Input surface
inScanPath Path Path along which the profile is extracted
inScanPathAlignment CoordinateSystem2D* Adjusts the scan path to the position of the inspected object
inScanWidth Integer 1 - Width of the scan field in pixels
inSurfaceInterpolation InterpolationMethod Interpolation method used for extraction of surface points
inMaxInterpolationLength Integer* Maximal number of consecutive not existing profile points
inSmoothingStdDev Real 0.0 - Standard deviation of the gaussian smoothing applied to the extracted profile
outProfile Profile The resulting profile of the surface height
outPath Path The path consisting of the points from which the resulting profile is extracted
outAlignedScanPath Path Path along which the scan is performed; in the image coordinate system
