I am currently working on a project where I use Karamba through its C# API.
Is there a way to call the meshing tool of Karamba “Mesh Breps” through a C# function?
I have the impression that the logic is directly implemented in the SolveInstance of the component, hence not accessible from outside.
Thank you very much for your answer.
thanks for your hint! Yes, you are right. In Karamba3D 1.3.3 the mesher-UI and the solution procedure are still contained in one place.
I will change that in version 2.0.0. and add a separate static class which contains the mesher logic. Please have a look at https://github.com/karamba3d/K3D_NightlyBuilds. I think it will be there by mid next week.
Great! I will download the latest version next week then.
Thanks a lot!
I am looking for the same thing but do not manage to find it in the latest NighltyBuild, did you manage to use the brep to mesh in c# and where did you find it?
@karamba3d which method would you propose to create a brep to karamba mesh3 in c#?
the K3D mesher can be envoked via
/// meshes a list of breps such that their vertices coincide on common edges. The minimum mesh-size is hard-coded to 5mm. This is due to tolerance checks and will be removed in future.
/// list of breps to be meshed
/// points to be added to the mesh as vertices if their distance from the breps is not too large
/// characteristic length of the resulting face edges
/// case 0: No Point Reduction (check Cull Mode),
/// case 1: Point Reduction is set to ‘Leave One’; Culling Points at distance < 0.5 * Mesh Resolution
/// case 2: Point Reduction is set to ‘Average’; Culling Points at distance < 0.5 * Mesh Resolution
/// Edges are refined with: Math.Round(refineEdgeResFactor, 2) x Mesh Resolution
/// Vertices closer than cullDist get removed
/// tolerance *0.1 = tolerance for delauney triangulation
/// must be between 0 and 1; smoothes the mesh
/// number of steps for smoothing the mesh
/// warning encountered during mesh generation
/// information regarding the meshing process
/// resulting meshes
public static void solve(List inputBrep, List inclusionPoints, double mResolution, int m_mode, double refineEdgeResFactor, double cullDist, double tolerance, double smooth, int steps, out string warning, out string info, out List remappedMeshes)
Use “Mesh3 mesh3 = mesh.Convert() from ‘Karamba.GHopper.Geometry’” to convert a Rhino Mesh to Mesh3.
