No, that won’t return indexed results. To do so will require actually adding a distance index op on the gist_nd indexes (the ones underlying the &&& operator)

For my project I need fast searching for nearest neighbors in 3d space.
We use postgis geometry with POINT(x y z), but apparently <-> doesn't show 3d distance, but rather 2d. Which is kinda bummer (why isn't it even listed in docs?).
Anyway - on IRC I was said to:
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION geometry_distance_centroid(geom1 geometry, geom2 geometry) RETURNS float8 AS 'SELECT ST_3DDistance($1,$2)' LANGUAGE 'sql' IMMUTABLE STRICT;
And then <-> will work with 3d, but will that also work *correctly* with gist indexes?
