The geometry/topology node library is explored in this video. Learn how to extract faces, edges, and vertices from solid objects on your workspace. Other attributes such as volume, surface area, and centroid are also explored.
- [Instructor] At the end of the last video,…we used the solid union node to join two solids…together into this resulting complex solid…that you can see in the background 3D preview.…In this video, let's see what kinds of analysis…we can perform on this new solid.…Let's begin by revisiting the geometry, abstract,…topology section of the node library…that we found in an earlier video in this chapter.…The topology tools are good at extracting…components like edges, faces and vertices…of the geometry that we input.…Let's drop one of each node onto the canvas…and connect them to our solid to see what results we get.…
We can see in each nodes preview, the calculation works…but we don't see anything new…in the background geometry preview.…There's one more step to turn the edges,…faces and vertices coming out of these nodes…into curves, surface and point data types…that we're used to working with so far.…In our geometry abstract library, there's a section…dedicated to each of these topology data types.…Let's begin with the edge portion of the library.…
