PolygonIntersections

FilledSmallSquare PolygonIntersections is an option for Graphics3D which specifies whether intersecting polygons should be left unchanged.

FilledSmallSquare With the default setting PolygonIntersections -> True, Graphics3D objects are returned unchanged whether or not they contain intersecting polygons.

FilledSmallSquare With the setting PolygonIntersections -> False, Graphics3D objects are modified by breaking polygons into smaller pieces which do not intersect each other.

FilledSmallSquare PolygonIntersections -> False is useful in creating graphics objects which can be sent to certain external three-dimensional rendering programs.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.10.14.
