# Prevent overlapping using distribute points on faces node in geometry nodes

I want to prevent overlapping while I'm using distribute points on faces node, I have no idea

• I'm definitely interested in this as well. To prevent overlap it needs to read in a bit about the geometry of each instance. I have a similar issue where the geometry being instantiated on each point has random sizes within a range and I'd like to prevent them from overlapping as well. Jul 3 at 18:15

The only option you currently have with Distribute Points on Faces is to use the Poisson Disk option, and set the Distance Min value accordingly.
Here I instantiate circles with a radius of $$0.1m$$, so I set the Distance Min value to $$0.2m$$.
