This tool is optimized for objects with flat faces (no curves). The corresponding tool Part Workbench might be more suited for objects that contain curved surfaces.from the
- Select a mesh object.
- Press the entry in Arch → Utilities → Mesh to Shape.
new_obj = meshToShape(obj, mark=True, fast=True, tol=0.001, flat=False, cut=True)
The above code snippet converts the given
obj (a mesh), into a shape, joining coplanar facets.
True, non-solid objects will be marked in red.
True, it uses a faster algorithm by building a shell from the facets then removing splitter.
tolis the tolerance used when converting mesh segments to wires.
True, it will force the wires to be perfectly planar to be sure they can be converted into faces, but this might leave gaps in the final shell.
True, holes in faces are made by subtraction.
