3D Polygon Mesh Surfaces

This chapter discusses polygon mesh surfaces that, unlike the planar surfaces of 3DFACE and PFACE, can curve and twist through space, can be rounded, and can have irregular edges.

This chapter

• describes the characteristics and properties of polygon mesh surfaces;

• explains how each of the five AutoCAD commands that make polygon mesh surfaces work, what they can and cannot do, and how they differ from each other;

• describes AutoCAD’s premade surface objects.
