Improve accuracy of mesh gradient?

So to make it simple. I currently use a method I found online to compute the gradient of a scalar field of a mesh. To test how accurate this is, I made a sphere and followed the gradient direction of ...

Are there algorithms besides Canny edge detection that can create consistent width edges?

Sobel edge detection is pretty much the quintessential way to get edges out of an image. It however suffers from certain quirks. One example is, because it's gradient, based certain surfaces exhibit ...
