About the generation of a stl model


the API function StlAPI::Write(aShape, aFile, Standard_True)
is working fine.

But, is it possible to control the number of nodes on the plane surfaces with a "depth of cut" parameter ?

Hi Denis,

StlAPI::Write function in OCCT 6.8.0 uses BRepMesh_IncrementalMesh to compute triangulations. That class can not let you control the number of nodes on planes. A possible workaround could be in preparing the triangulations using some other meshing algorithm, for example, Express Mesh (http://www.opencascade.org/support/products/emesh/).
