Creating Meshes

This section describes how to create 3D surfaces and mesh entities.

You can create PolygonMesh forms. However, PolygonMeshes can only approximate curved surfaces because the faces of the mesh are planar. You can create a better approximation of a curved surface by increasing the density of the mesh.

You can create several types of planar faces and meshes:

The 3D command creates the following 3D shapes in the form of mesh entities: boxes, cones, dishes, domes, pyramids, spheres, tori, wedges, and meshes between four connected edges.
