TetGenConvexHull

TetGenConvexHull[points]

generates a convex hull for a 3D point set.

Details and Options

  • To use TetGenConvexHull, you first need to load it using Needs["TetGenLink`"].
  • TetGenConvexHull will return a list of points and facets that encloses all points.

Examples

Basic Examples  (2)

First, some random points are generated and displayed:

Now you can compute the convex hull of the 3D points. TetGenConvexHull will return a list of points and surface triangles:

Each surface triangle is a list of three integers. These integers refer to the coordinates. You can plot them by using GraphicsComplex:

Load geometry data:

To compute the convex hull of the data, use TetGenConvexHull:

Note that the points returned need not be the same as the original input data:

Duplicate coordinates are deleted:
