The Triangulate node converts all faces in a mesh (quads and n-gons) to triangular faces. It functions the same as the Triangulate tool in Edit Mode.
Standard geometry input.
A standard Boolean selection input to determine which faces will be triangulated.
- Minimum Vertices
Minimum number of vertices a face must have to be triangulated. For example, setting this value to 5, will prevent triangulation of Quads and only triangulate N-gons.
- Quad Method
Split the quads in nice triangles, slower method.
Split the quads on their 1st and 3rd vertices.
- Fixed Alternate:
Split the quads on their 2nd and 4th vertices.
- Shortest Diagonal:
Split the quads along their shortest diagonal.
- Longest Diagonal:
Split the quads along their longest diagonal. This is the preferred mode for cloth simulations.
- N-gon Method
Arrange the new triangles nicely, slower method.
Split n-gons using an ear-clipping algorithm (the same method of tessellation used for viewport display).
