Re: Easy to generate file format for efficient FreeCAD impor

A plot of the shape before triangulation is shown below: extruded_part_matlab_untriangulated.png It is extruded from the end polygon which has about 1000 vertices. This shape has about 1000 faces. Below is the part after triangulation, export to stl, and import to FreeCAD. It has many more faces. tr...

Re: Easy to generate file format for efficient FreeCAD impor

The input data is a set of vertices (x,y,z locations), and a set of faces represented by sets of indices of the vertices. The faces are polygons of any number of vertices. The set of faces can be assumed to form a closed surface (e.g. it might be created from an extruded polygon). This surface mesh ...

Easy to generate file format for efficient FreeCAD import

Hello, Apologies if this is not the right forum to ask. I have developed an interface for CGAL from Matlab/Octave. I would like to efficiently import the meshes created using CGAL to FreeCAD. Currently I have a setup which triangulates the surface and writes it to an STL file. However, some of my me...
