Convert solid, surface, polyface mesh to polygon mesh in AutoCAD

Automesher application for AutoCAD / ZWCAD / BricsCAD is able to convert any of 3D drawing entity ie. 3D solid, face, surface, smooth and polyface mesh into polygon mesh entity type. Polygon mesh entity is defined by a matrix of M and N vertices, similar to a grid consisting of columns and rows, with 256 size limit in each direction. This gives an advantage for polygon mesh entity to store maximum of 65,536 vertices in comparison to polyface mesh which can store 32,767 points only.

This unique Automesher feature to convert 3D drawing enities enables native MESH command to create primitive objects such as a box, cone, cylinder, pyramid, sphere, wedge, or torus of any type as with Automesher add-on it is possible to convert them into different 3D entity type. Automesher plugin supports conversion between polyface mesh and solid, polygon mesh and polyface mesh, polyface mesh and faces, faces and solid, polygon mesh and solid or surface and polyface mesh.

BricsCAD V16 expands 3D object creation to 3D surfaces, which can be edited just like 3D solids, including those imported from other CAD programs.
