+ Collaboration diagram for Importing Unstructured Grids:


An unstructured grid entity depends on a contiguously numbered (0..N-1) collection of XYZ values know as an unstructured vertex list. All unstructured grid entites associated with a given unstructured vertex list define their element connectivity using indices into this shared list. Though uncommon, the creation of multiple, distinct unstructured vertex lists is supported. Each list can have its own collection of topologically distinct, unstructured grid entities. An unstructured vertex list must be created before its associated unstructured grid entities can be created. An element cannot be added to an unstructured grid entity until after the XYZ values indexed by the element have been added to the unstructured vertex list.
