ArrayMesh

Inherits: Mesh < Resource < RefCounted < Object

Mesh type that provides utility for constructing a surface from arrays.

Description

The ArrayMesh is used to construct a Mesh by specifying the attributes as arrays.

The most basic example is the creation of a single triangle:

var vertices = PackedVector3Array()
vertices.push_back(Vector3(0, 1, 0))
vertices.push_back(Vector3(1, 0, 0))
vertices.push_back(Vector3(0, 0, 1))

# Initialize the ArrayMesh.
var arr_mesh = ArrayMesh.new()
var arrays = []
arrays.resize(Mesh.ARRAY_MAX)
arrays[Mesh.ARRAY_VERTEX] = vertices

# Create the Mesh.
arr_mesh.add_surface_from_arrays(Mesh.PRIMITIVE_TRIANGLES, arrays)
var m = MeshInstance3D.new()
m.mesh = arr_mesh

The MeshInstance3D is ready to be added to the SceneTree to be shown.

See also ImmediateMesh, MeshDataTool and SurfaceTool for procedural geometry generation.

Note: Godot uses clockwise winding order for front faces of triangle primitive modes.
