I'd love a Get Mesh Vertices node, similar to the great Parabox Get Mesh Values, but here perhaps for Points only.

I found myself using that feature the most and using it for many compositions.

However since the solved bug for points not showing when used with noise on 3D objects (solved bug), I get a bug with the Parabox node.

Official support for this would be a great value IMHO.

For those who voted, I have uploaded a basic custom node that retrieves the vertices of an object : link.
It doesn't retrieve sub children so flatten the object first with Flatten 3D Object if the object has children.

Also, my coding skills are very limited, so keep voting for this feature request if you want a more powerful and optimised built-in version polished by the Vuo team.

Chosen to be implemented.

Yep, we can easily include normals (and tangents, bitangents, and texture coordinates).

Actually we'll just include positions and normals, since AFAIK there's not really anything useful you can do with the other pieces of data in Vuo currently. Positions you can pass to Make Points Object, Make Triangles Object, etc. Normals you can use together with positions to orient another object so it's sitting on the first object's surface.
