\page tutorial_01 Tutorial 01: Creating a Simple Volume Mesh
Creating a volumetric mesh with %OpenVolumeMesh is pretty simple.
In order to make available the different built-in vector types
that %OpenVolumeMesh provides, just include the following header:
#include <OpenVolumeMesh/Geometry/VectorT.hh>
Depending on whether you want to deal with hexahedral or general
polyhedral meshes, either of the following headers has to be
included, too:
// Hexahedral meshes
#include <OpenVolumeMesh/HexahedralMesh/HexahedralMesh.hh>
// Polyhedral meshes
#include <OpenVolumeMesh/PolyhedralMesh/PolyhedralMesh.hh>
Note that you can also handle hexahedral meshes with the
OpenVolumeMesh::PolyhedralMesh class, but class OpenVolumeMesh::HexahedralMesh
provides some specific topology checks and, more importantly,
a set of specialized iterators.
The following code creates a polyhedral mesh instance and fills it
with two adjacent tetrahedra:
typedef OpenVolumeMesh::Geometry::Vec3d Vec3d
typedef OpenVolumeMesh::PolyhedralMesh<Vec3d> PolyhedralMeshV3d;
// Create mesh object
PolyhedralMeshV3d myMesh;
// Add eight vertices
PolyhedralMesh::VertexHandle v0 = myMesh.add_vertex(Vec3d(-1.0, 0.0, 0.0));
PolyhedralMesh::VertexHandle v1 = myMesh.add_vertex(Vec3d( 0.0, 0.0, 1.0));
PolyhedralMesh::VertexHandle v2 = myMesh.add_vertex(Vec3d( 1.0, 0.0, 0.0));
PolyhedralMesh::VertexHandle v3 = myMesh.add_vertex(Vec3d( 0.0, 0.0,-1.0));
PolyhedralMesh::VertexHandle v4 = myMesh.add_vertex(Vec3d( 0.0, 1.0, 0.0));
std::vector<PolyhedralMesh::VertexHandle> vertices;
// Add faces
vertices.push_back(v0); vertices.push_back(v1);vertices.push_back(v3);
FaceHandle f0 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
vertices.push_back(v2); vertices.push_back(v0);vertices.push_back(v3);
FaceHandle f1 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
vertices.push_back(v0); vertices.push_back(v2);vertices.push_back(v1);
FaceHandle f2 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
vertices.push_back(v1); vertices.push_back(v4);vertices.push_back(v3);
FaceHandle f3 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
vertices.push_back(v2); vertices.push_back(v3);vertices.push_back(v4);
FaceHandle f4 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
vertices.push_back(v2); vertices.push_back(v4);vertices.push_back(v1);
FaceHandle f5 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
vertices.push_back(v1); vertices.push_back(v2);vertices.push_back(v3);
FaceHandle f6 = _mesh.add_face(vertices);
std::vector<PolyhedralMeshHalf::FaceHandle> halffaces;
// Add first tetrahedron
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f0, 1));
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f1, 1));
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f2, 1));
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f6, 1));
// Add second tetrahedron
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f3, 1));
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f4, 1));
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f5, 1));
halffaces.push_back(_mesh.halfface_handle(f6, 0));
