ArchiCAD, Tip of the Day
In the Mesh tool we have 3 options under the Model Tab.
If we start of with All Ridges Sharp, we can see that the mesh becomes very triangulated.
This is the simplest form for the computer to generate, but is not much good for rendering
The Second Option is User Defined Sharp, This means that the contour lines we use will produce a sharp definition, however the ground between the contours will be smoothed out.
This gives a better rendered finish
The third option is All Ridges Smooth. This will smooth out the contours of the the land and give you the most realistic looking ground line effect.
This gives the best rendering finish.
