Part PointsFromMesh creates a shape starting from a mesh object imported or produced from the Mesh Workbench.

The resulting shape is a collection of vertices or points, which can be used as reference to further create lines, sketches and faces with other tools, like those from the Sketcher or the Draft Workbench.

How to use

  1. Select the mesh object.
  2. Go to Part → Part PointsFromMesh.svg Create points object from mesh.
  3. A shape from the mesh object is created as a separate new object.

There will be no analyzing or validating of the mesh object. Analyzing and repairing of the mesh should be done manually before conversion, if needed. Appropriate tools are available in the Mesh Workbench.
