Create Quad/Tri mesh from collection of points using grasshopper or python

Hi Guys,

I need to create mesh from collection of points in Rhino.


I tried using “Meshpatch” command in rhino but improper mesh was created & it is not closed looping.

Require fine mesh (Quad/Tri) see below image sample.

Proper mesh

Is it possible to achieve fine mesh using grasshopper or python scripting.

Did you tried the grasshopper trimesh?
Sounds to me the tool you’re looking for.

Hi -

You should probably use the MeshFromPoints command to create the initial mesh. Alternatively, look into using a tool such as the Rhino Cockroach plug-in or an external application such as Cloud Compare to create a mesh from the points. After the mesh is created, you can use the TriRemesh component in Grasshopper.

You could also use the ball-pivoting algorithm like the link bellow…

Yes we tried TriRemesh, but its not creating mesh considering the given points.
see below image.

using MeshFromPoints the following output was received. It seems like boundaries are extended.


and using TriRemesh, meshes are not created on the given points.

Can you send me the plugin or package used.
Since the website is under maintence.

Is it possible to generate python script for the same?

If you post your file I can show you how to include selected points.

I have already attached Rhino file please refer initial post.


The plugin is not in the food4Rhino. It’s in the milkbox group. You can find the link in my post and join the milkbox group first.

Here’s another way to do it with a script. (79.7 KB)

I’m curious though - where are these points coming from?


Sorry Kim but still am unable to find the download link.
also i checked the blog

Thanks for your reply actually the side mesh concept is fine but can we avoid filling the highlighted portion where the mesh is not required(void)

I don’t think you even logged into that site at all?

Sorry Kim, i already signed in to the account.

Is that the same input as the file you shared? it looks different. That yellow highlighted strip in your image isn’t in the point distribution above.
How are you actually getting these points - it looks like you actually have a surface you are distributing points on?
Some context here might suggest an easier approach to all of this.

Greetings Kim,
I have downloaded the file. when i tried to load following error is coming.
Can you please advise?

If the gha file was installed properly(including unblocking the gha before installation), then you can find it in the mesh tab(Mesh–>Triangulation)
