Hi all
I am trying to get the point information from each polygon in my object how can i do this? the SDK is pretty limited to explaining how?
I use the Obj->GetPolygons(); to list the individual points in the objects but i need to access the points of individual polys and determine if they are tri or quad?
by the way i am using Cinema 4d Xl 6.3 not 8.1 as the silly post says!
thanks
Manwich

1. The SDK seems to provide all needed information for your question:

    
    
    class Polygon
    {
    public:

Polygon();

    
    
    }

_<_h2_>_Descrip_<_h2_>_/H2>
A Polygon structure.
_7>

_<_h2_>_nation

The variables

    
    
    a

,

    
    
    b

,

    
    
    c

and

    
    
    d

refer to point indexes. Triangles are defined by making

    
    
    d

the same as

    
    
    c

.
by the way, you have posted this "silly" post and that you are using 8.100 😉

have a look on my website in the COFFEE area, there is a library with several useful functions. There is also a little function that calculates the midpoint of a polygon. You can see how it is used in there. www.3ddesigner.net

You need to set this whenever you make a new thread 😉
