Re: From Blender2YADE


Thank you Anton & Vaclav,

Great news. Actually I use Tetgen to do the 3D tesselation of Blender objects. Tetgen can also generate .stl or .mesh files, so it sounds good!
Cheers, Frederic

Subject: Re: [Yade-users] From Blender2YADE

Recently I created the small function for importing .mesh files into the YADE simulation.

This type of files is created by the GMSH program.
But, I think, you can try to export your data into the mesh-format from Blender.

Also there is ymport.stl function in ymport module for stl geometry format, which also supported by Blender (not sure).

Sorry, I have no idea about importing using Tetgen.

Hello mates,

Does anybody import data directly from blender ? I use it as a modeler and I plan to split the generated objects in two sets.
The first set of objects is filled with tetrahedra using Tetgen.  Then, these objects are filled with spherical discrete elements using Spherepadder.  This part works and it is possible to import this list of discrete elements in YADE as well.
The second set of objects, made of triangular faces, composes the boundary conditions, which I would like to import directly from YADE.  What would be the most straightforward technique to do so?

Thank you,
