Extrude a 2D mesh to 3D#
This example shows how to extrude a 2D mesh to 3D. This can be helpful for closed laboratory geometries for example. If you are looking for more flexible ways to create 3D meshes, have a look at TetGen and Gmsh.
import numpy as np import pygimli as pg import pygimli.meshtools as mt
We start by generating a 2D mesh.
plc = mt.createCircle([-1, -4], radius=1.5, area=0.1, nSegments=25) circle = mt.createMesh(plc) for cell in circle.cells(): cell.setMarker(cell.id()) pg.show(circle, circle.cellMarkers(), label="Cell Markers")
(<matplotlib.axes._subplots.AxesSubplot object at 0x7fe8ea901760>, <matplotlib.colorbar.Colorbar object at 0x7fe8aabb69d0>)
We now extrude this mesh to 3D given a z vector.
