Plot Area Relative Curvature on Tooth Mesh

Description

a molaR surface plotting function

Usage

```ARC3d(
ARC_object,
main = "",
cex.main = 2,
cex = 1,
colors = c("darkblue", "blue", "powderblue", "gray", "gray", "tan", "orange",
"darkorange1"),
fieldofview = 0,
legend = T
)
```

Arguments

 `ARC_object` An object that stores the output of the `ARC()` function `main` string indicating plot title. Defaults to empty `cex.main` numeric value setting the relative size of the plot title, `cex` numeric value setting the relative size of the legend, default=1 `colors` a concatenated string of colors for plotting different values of positive and negative curvature. `fieldofview` Passes an argument to `par3d()` changing the field of view (in degrees) of the resulting 3D plot `legend` Logical indicating whether or not a legend shold be displayed. Default=T

Details

This function creates a surface map of the discarded DNE faces. DNE calculations typically discard the top 1 tenth of one percent of faces, associated with extreme pockets and broken parts of surfaces. DNE calculations also typically discard the boundary faces from the calculation, either on the basis of 2 vertices on the boundary, or at least one vertext on the boundary. concaveCol defaults to gray and therefore is turned off. When an alternative color is provided, the function will identify the the areas of the tooth that are concave vs convex.

Details of the other function arguments can be found in the DNE3d() description and identical terms are organized to function the same way.

Examples

```ARC_output <- ARC(Tooth)
ARC3d(ARC_output)
```
