Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How do use new "Create mesh section' node?

Hi all, So with the brand new 4.8 update there's a new procedural mesh node called "create mesh section" node?

In my "vertices" array, I have 6 entries, with vertices called: A, B, C, D, E, & F.

I want to create 8 triangles with the following vertices: ABC, DEF, CEB, EFB, BFA, FDA, ADC, & DCE

How do I do this?

Here's a little illustration, essentially every three entries in the array is a vertice in each triangle. The picture should explain it.

Hey thanks for that! I have a question... I'm trying to create a mesh cap using a spline. Do you have any ideas on how to procedurally set the order of the verts in the Triangles array based on the number of spline points? I have the spline points assigned to the Vertex array correctly
