How to planarize dual mesh primitive ?

Recommended Posts

Hi, ALL

I would like ask you that how i can planarize dual mesh primitive.

i made attached image and hip file model.

the dual mesh (attached image's random color primitives) are not planar. so i want to planarize those primitive.

dose anyone know how to do it ?

 

thank you.

Dear mestela

thank you solution. i see , use "facet / make planar " it is easy way! very helpful.

I want to keep each points connected .Is it possible to make planar like below link?

If we accept  edge and geometry shape will be changed a little bit , then we can make planar??

or there is other solution ?

There's no built in relaxing things to do what that video describes, no, you'd have to build that yourself.

Dear mestela

thank you for your advice.

 

I found one solution by blender. 
https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/48/what-is-the-simplest-way-to-generate-a-dodecahedron

 

is there anyway in houdini ?

below steps are came from above reference link.

select all the vertices in the center of each pentagon.



Dissolve Vertices to get rid of them



Limited Dissolve(bt angle)

your first picture seems to show something like a saddle surface which is partly concave. i don't think that it's geometrically possible to approximate such a surface with convex hexagonal polygons which are also planar and connected. you'll always end up with concave hexagons in your case ...
