I am a new user of Grasshopper, and recently I’ve been trying to insert mesh information to a grasshopper model to feed a finite element analysis. Thus, I am using a third-party mesh generator that is compatible with Rhinoceros. Using the “DeMesh” command on Grasshopper, I was able to break the mesh information into the coordinates and the nodes of each element (vertices and faces, as displayed in the figure):
Nonetheless, this process made me question the possibility of recreating the mesh using the “ConMesh” command of Grasshopper without linking with the .3dm file mesh. For example, is it possible to create a mesh inside Grasshopper only with the information panels related to the vertices and faces? As displayed in the following picture:
The vertices information is a list of vectors that I believe is possible to recreate. However, I could not identify which type of data represents the faces information (example: T(124;132;84). Anyone knows if I can create the mesh only with this information, and if so, how could I do that without linking it to the mesh information on the .3dm file? Without this link, I could bring directly from the mesh generator to Grasshopper the mesh data and make my model more independent.
