Chapter 02Mesh Types

BJS provides various methods for constructing meshes. They include builders for creating regular shapes like the sphere can cuboids, builders for constructing parametric shapes like lines, ribbons, and tubes, and other methods for building specialty meshes like solid particle systems. In this section we merely provide examples of each type of mesh so that you know what’s in the BJS toolbox. In the next few sections we discuss how to construct the meshes and the parameters used in their construction.

BJS calls the following shapes set shapes because their geometries are set by their
