Examples

E.10.4 - Polygonal Face Tessellation

Example overview

The various examples demonstrate the use of tessellated items with vertex list and index, and optionally normal list and index.

The example shows a cube with a recess being tessellated using polygonal faces without and with voids. Figure E.A displays the rendering in a target application.
