The normal of a surface is an example of a 3D vectorial property, where the components of the vector are defined by x, y, and z.

To visualize an object’s 3D vectorial property:

  1. Open the object’s Style Editor > 3D Property.
  2. Select Visible and choose the 3D property as a variable.
  3. Optionally, Arrow style and Rescale can be helpful for visualizing 3D properties.

3D properties can be created manually through scripts or via commands like Compute Distance to Object or Compute Distance to Nearest Neighbour.
