Extract and change the positions of the nodes in a mesh.

Detailed Description

This module performs two simultanious operations. First the locations of all the nodes in the "Input Field" are extracted into a matrix and sent to the "Output Matrix" port as an Nx3 matrix, where N is the number of nodes in the field. The positions are sent in xyz order. This first operation works on any field type because it does not make changes to the field.

The second operation is optional. If an "Input Matrix" is available then a new field is constructed containing a copy of the "Input Field" except that the node locations are replaced by the position data in the "Input Matrix". The "Input Matrix" is expected to be Nx3, where N is the number of nodes in the field and the three columns represent xyz positions. This operation requires the "Input Field" to be an editable mesh type.
