Inherits from the Geom class. View the class hierarchy.

This class inherits from the Geom class and does not contain any of its own properties.

A triangle mesh (TriMesh) represents an arbitrary collection of triangles. The triangle mesh collision system has the following features:

  • Any mix of triangles can be represented. In other words, the triangles are not required to have any particular strip, fan, or grid structure.
  • Triangle meshes can interact with spheres, boxes, rays, and other triangle meshes.
  • The simulator can handle relatively large triangles.
  • The simulator uses temporal coherence to speed up collision tests. For example, when a geom has its collision checked with a TriMesh once, data is stored inside the TriMesh.
