3D Info

Modified on Fri, 22 Sep 2023 at 12:29 PM


This function checks 3D data for the number of points in each mesh and informs you if a 3D dataset is structured or unstructured.


You can quickly evaluate if your dataset is structured or unstructured in case you aren’t sure. Furthermore you get a quick overview of the mesh sizes in your dataset. This could be helpful to check if all meshes have roughly the same size (this could be a model quality issue) and in which order of magnitude mesh sizes are (this could be a memory issue).

How to use

Simply create the step and select a 3D dataset in the 3D data field. You can also define the name of the tabular dataset in which the results of this function are stored. That is the mesh size and type are available in a separate dataset for further exploration and/or transformation.

The result will be a small info box which informs you if the dataset is structured or unstructured. Below that a table preview of the result is shown. The result is the ID (Name) of each mesh together with its size (Number of Points) and Mesh Type.

If you want to see the full dataset you can either use the tabular preview by clicking on the dataset in the header of the function or by using on of the plotting functions to visualise the full dataset.
