Whether to drop unused vertices (default TRUE) 
An alpha shape is a generalisation of a convex hull enclosing a set of points. Unlike a convex hull, the resultant surface can be partly concave allowing the surface to more closely follow the set of points.
In this implementation, the parameter alpha is a scale factor with units of length that defines a spatial domain. When alpha is larger the alpha shape approaches the convex hull; when alpha is smaller the alpha shape has a greater number of faces / vertices i.e. it follows the points more closely.

manipulated using rgl
