Meshes

The Meshes folder contains all meshes imported into Leapfrog Geo and created in Leapfrog Geo outside of the model building process.

Two types of meshes are stored in the Meshes folder:

  • Non-editable meshes () are meshes imported into Leapfrog Geo and meshes created in Leapfrog Geo from the moving plane, Meshes > Mesh Operations tools and by extracting mesh parts from other surfaces in the project.
  • Editable meshes () are created in Leapfrog Geo from data objects such as points data, GIS data and polylines. Editable meshes can be refined by adding more data. Editable meshes can be interpolated meshes (using FastRBF) or triangulated meshes (using Delaunay triangulation). Interpolated meshes can also be created from structural data and values objects.

This topic describes importing meshes, creating meshes and modifying editable meshes. See Adding Data to Surfaces, Global Trends and Editing Surfaces with Polylines for information about different techniques for refining other surfaces in the project.
