class bpy.types.TriangulateModifier(Modifier)

Triangulate Mesh

keep_custom_normals

Try to preserve custom normals (WARNING: depending on chosen triangulation method, shading may not be fully preserved, ‘Fixed’ method usually gives the best result here)

Type

boolean, default False

min_vertices

Triangulate only polygons with vertex count greater than or equal to this number

Type

int in [4, inf], default 0

ngon_method

Method for splitting the polygons into triangles

  • BEAUTY Beauty, Arrange the new triangles evenly (slow).

  • CLIP Clip, Split the polygons with an ear clipping algorithm.

Type

enum in [‘BEAUTY’, ‘CLIP’], default ‘BEAUTY’

quad_method

Method for splitting the quads into triangles

  • BEAUTY Beauty, Split the quads in nice triangles, slower method.

  • FIXED Fixed, Split the quads on the first and third vertices.

  • FIXED_ALTERNATE Fixed Alternate, Split the quads on the 2nd and 4th vertices.

  • SHORTEST_DIAGONAL Shortest Diagonal, Split the quads based on the distance between the vertices.

Type

enum in [‘BEAUTY’, ‘FIXED’, ‘FIXED_ALTERNATE’, ‘SHORTEST_DIAGONAL’], default ‘BEAUTY’
