Mesh quality for disk

Postby NaN » Thu Aug 08, 2019 3:56 am

Dear all
When I create a disk using IStdShape_DG it comes up on the screen with pretty coarse mesh. The same if I use New Object in model explorer > Action. Is there a way to specify deviation or something like that?
I would appreciate any suggestions

Hi NaN
We have improved this in todays update. There was a minor bug. It should be OK now

Deviation for triangulation is set automatically. It depends on screen resolution, window size, view volume (current zoom) and model size. The algorithm should work fine in most situations. Please let us know if you see any issues.

We have also added just in case a way to adjust it via context ... ntext.aspx. See the DeviationFactor property.

Reducing it from the default 1.0 makes triangulations more dense. Make few experiments before doing that because it can affect performance. Increasing improves performance. This might make sense for things like animation of surface modifications.

The deviation is multiplied by the DeviationFactor just before using it

Thanks for "good bug"
