Mesh Geometry

Surface of Mesh Geometry is defined by its mesh. Query IMeshGeometry_DG from the relevant IGeometry_DG or IEntity_DG to access the mesh.

Unlike BRep geometry Mesh geometry is not parametric. In the current release surface of a mesh section can only be modified programmatically in DGKC using meshing interfaces. Objects imported from OBJ, VRML or STL CAD formats are added to the model as Entities with "Mesh" type of geometry. Mesh geometry can also be useful for programmatic surface generation or manipulation for complicated freeform objects.

Mesh Entity objects can be created dynamically using Object Generator class. To convert another type of geometry to Mesh call IEntity_DG.SetGeometryType("Mesh")
