Hello,

i summarize here the discussion we had by phone:

you can use interpolation with the jet fitting if you give exactly

the nb of points that correspond to the nb of constraints.

Then, by default, the differential quantities returned are those

computed at the projection of the first point you have given on the

fitted polynomial surface.

If you want to compute the quantities for another point p, and you

dont want this point to be taken into account to do the fitting

(either-wise just give this point first and you are done); you can

just project this point on the fitted surface (that is given by the

monge form in the monge coordinate system) and compute the diff

quantities by classical diff geo formula.

I may consider adding this functionality in the future ...

best
