[Sidefx-houdini-list] meshing study

The polywire SOP can use point attributes to control it on a per point
basis. For instance, if you put a width attribute on the points and then in
the Wire Radius field put $WIDTH, your mesh will have varying radii along
it. The same works for most all of the parameters.

Does this help?
