How do I create complex shapes with fixed cross sections in Victory Mesh?


Victory Mesh versions 1.7.2.C and later include two new commands that can be used for complex shape genera-tion. The path and follow commands can be used together to generate surface meshes of general shapes based on fixed cross sections.

PathThe path command connects a sequence of vertices via edges. The command operates in line or Bezier modes. In the line mode the from/to parameters are used to define the start and end of an n-dimensional line segment, for example:

PATH LINE FROM=”0,0,0” TO=”1,0,0” OUT=”LINE”

will generate a 3-dimensional edge from the origin to the point (1,0,0).The path command can also generate Bezier curves. A set of primary points are provided as input and cubic Bezier curves are fitted between those points.
