0031251: Mesh - Add a parameter for IncrementalMesh to ignore face tolerance for face deflection
In our use case of the mesh representation of CAD model, it is highly important, that the desired linear deflection is kept as good as possible.
Unfortunately, often the files imported from 3rd party sources specify too high face tolerances which results in higher linear deflection for face.
Here I propose to add an additional flag to meshing parameters to enforce the linear deflection (or in other words to ignore face tolerance)
For example try to import attached step file and mesh using linear deflection 0.004 and angular deflection 0.244 The final deviation from CAD to mesh shows that 67% of mesh surface is over 0.004 distance from CAD surface...

This is maybe kind of acceptable for text based formats like STEP, but enforcing the mesh deflection improves reasonably the final result.

    #Parameter has been renamed to TightFit. Added test case.
    New parameter -tight has been added to incmesh command.

Hello Dima!

Thank you a lot for your patch.
As for non-regression tests, they're OK, given that I have renamed parameter to TightFit. Maybe, it is as ambiguous as ForceDeflection due to dual nature of face and edge deflection parameters, but IMHO it would explain results of adjustment of face deflection better.

Best regards,

Dear Mikhail,

test results are available by the following link: [^]

Please review.

By the way, what if we make new behaviour default without any additional parameter since its logic seems correct for general case?
2019-12-23 15:15   
For me, ForceDeflection name is more understandable and its implementation follows its name (even with your implementation version).

Bug in your version is that you pass face tolerance (absolute value) to the function ComputeAbsoluteDeflection() that treats it as relative (in the case of theParameters.Relative is true).

As for the new test, I see the following lines:

incmesh result 0.004 -a 14 -tight
checktrinfo result -tri 290474 -nod 149903 -defl 0.041867171925924547

It means that we request deflection 0.004, but obtain on output 0.04, that is ten times worse than requested. Is it unavoidable, or can we do something more to achieve the requested value?
2019-12-23 15:19   
We cannot do this the default behavior. For an shape with honest tolerances, if some defect in the shape was neglected using a big tolerance, the algorithm may fail discretizing such shape if it ignores the tolerance of the shape.

(edited on: 2019-12-23 16:03)
As for face tolerance that has been taken into account, I thought that usage of deflections smaller than face tolerance (given that face is valid) is illogical as far as 3D point could be within specified tolerance from real surface.

2019-12-23 15:51   
Agreed to use the term ForceFaceDeflection.
If it is true then exclude face tolerance as well as tolerances of its edges/vertices from consideration when assigning the requested deflection for the inner part of the face.
Face tolerance as it is has no any geometrical sense for the purpose of meshing.

>> It means that we request deflection 0.004, but obtain on output 0.04, that is ten times worse than requested. Is it unavoidable, or can we do something more to achieve the requested value?

Currently, yes, it is unavoidable. Such a huge tolerance is caused by points on edges and segments built upon them. Here, mesh optimization ends up after 11 iterations with value 0.04579460790575135 on some face and stores it as the final result.

As a possible solution, user-defined deflection passed as a parameter to the algorithm could be used as is, without reference to edge tolerance, given that it is also has no geometrical sence in context of meshing.
