2D Meshes may be converted to other types of data used in GMS, such as a TIN or 2D scatter points. 2D Meshes are converted by using the following commands in the Grid menu:
The Mesh -> 2D Scatter Points command in the Build Mesh menu is used to create a new scatter point set using the nodes in a mesh. A copy is made of each of the data sets associated with the mesh and the data sets are associated with the new scatter point set.
A new TIN can be created from a 2D finite element mesh by selecting the Mesh -> TIN command from the Build Mesh menu. A triangle is created from each triangular element in the mesh and two triangles are created from each quadrilateral element in the mesh by splitting the quadrilateral element along the shortest diagonal.
