SaveMesh Method

Summary

Saves a mesh to one or more files.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public void SaveMesh( 
   string fileName 
) 
  
Public Sub SaveMesh( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String _ 
)  
public: 
void SaveMesh(  
   String^ fileName 
)  

Parameters

fileName
The name of the saved 3D mesh.

Remarks
  • A mesh can be split into multiple files. For example, if you saved a mesh with a name "JamesMesh", the saved mesh will be:

    • JamesMesh.x
    • JamesMesh001.x
    • JamesMesh002.x
    • JamesMesh003.x
    • JamesMesh004.x
    • ...

    To load this mesh select the first file. This is the file without numbers appended to the end of the file name.

  • The saved mesh can be used in any other mesh loading program, because it is using the universal mesh format.

  • You must first convert the object into SSD before being able to save the mesh. To switch to the SSD rendering technique, set the value of the VolumeType property to Medical3DVolumeType.SSD.
