Shrinkwrapper Tool - New Tech Preview tool in MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 8

New in MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 8: Shrinkwrapper Mesh Tool

MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 8 introduces a new General Access Technology Preview  mesh tool: the Shrinkwrapper

This new tool generates a mesh around an exisitng mesh or solid and shrinwraps it to make it as close as possible to the original element. You can think of it as if you are vacuum packing your elements with a "mesh bag" :)

The result is a light weight mesh version of  the original elements.

You can also use the shrinkwrapper to heal an existing mesh where manually repairing all the mesh issues would be too time consuming.

 

This tool is currently in Technical Preview stage, so it should not be used in production and/or on production/live data.
