Trying to translate your text, I assume you haven't tried the search function on the docs, which points to https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/nodes/sop/iso.html [www.sidefx.com]

Question for you: Do you know what “Iso Surfaces” are? If not, your second point would seem to make at least some sense, else a “resource” for “this kind of stuff” would probably be a volume …? Or a 3d grid?

As for “nodes being technical in nature”: Most Houdini nodes tend to be.

Out of here. Being called a dick after having supported Houdini users for years is over my paygrade.
I will work for money, but NOT for "you have to provide people with free products" Indie-artists.
Good bye.

The isosurface sop converts the surface of an implicit function into polygons using the marching cubes algorithm.
