3D Mesh with symmetry faces having coincident meshes

Posted by Michael Hansen at July 09. 2012

Hi there,

I am trying to build a mesh of a cyclic sector, so I have two faces with the same topology but with an angle between them. I would like these two faces to have an identical mesh.

I just can't find the way to do this. The aim is to do this automatically through the TUI, so the sew command doesn't seem to be a solution.

Any help or idea is very welcome :)

Have fun, cheers,

Hello,

I found the solution in another thread :)

The trick is to make a 3D mesh of the volume, then create a sub-mesh of the initial face with any parameters you want. A second sub-mesh has to be made for the "projected" face, with algorithm : Projection 1D-2D. It is necessary to define two vertexes on each face tough.

Hope this will help someone else ... python attached.

Have fun !
