Element Diameter 3DΒΆ

This quality control criterion consists in calculation of the maximal length of edges and diagonals of 3D mesh elements (tetrahedrons, pyramids, etc). For polyhedra the value is always zero.

To apply the Element Diameter 3D quality criterion to your mesh:

  1. Display your mesh in the viewer.

  2. Choose Controls > Volume Controls > Element Diameter 3D or click “Element Diameter 3D” button in the toolbar.
