Re: [Question #681993]: contact of polyhedras


Question #681993 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Jérôme Duriez proposed the following answer:

1. and 2.I think Tetra and Polyhedra shapes are actually different and
not related one to another. Contact algorithms for Polyhedra are
described at

Thanks to CGAL library they apply to any (convex) polyhedron, without
any subdivision in Tetra shapes.

3. These two functions both return a body of Polyhedra shape. Their
behavior / expected (or useable) attributes indeed differ though. One
accepts a random generation of vertices, the other waits for the user to
define them, for instance.
