Mesh from Contours

Used to construct a triangulated mesh element from a selected set of contours.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Modeling > Mesh > Create
  • Toolbox: Create Meshes

Expand to Rectangle If on, the mesh element is expanded to a rectangle that encompasses the area of the contours, with a buffer zone. The rectangle is given the z-value of the lowest contour. The buffer zone defaults to an amount that is 20% of the diagonal length of the bounding box for the data.
Keep Original If on, the original contour elements are retained and elements from reference files can be used.
