Mesh Generate

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Mesh Generate menu item is used to create custom meshes. One or more geometry objects are used as source data, and a bounding region may be used to restrict the overall dimensions of the mesh.


The mesh produced by this menu item is subject to the settings defined in the Mesh Settings dialog.


Polygon Settings:This group contains the list of all available geometry objects to use as source data for the mesh. One or more entries may be selected. Depending on the types of geometry being selected, the final mesh will attempt to account for the shape of the data (by preserving line segments where possible, for example).


Restriction:This option defines the bounding region of the final mesh. If none is specified, a concave bounding polygon containing all selected geometry will be used instead.
