The scheme shows four types of cylinder triangulation:
- The first example named “Star”. This is a standard triangulation method. All the edges connected to the central vertex. This approach allows conveniently selecting the edge loops and use a chamfer.
- The “Fan” is another way of triangulation. All the edges connected to a single vertex located on the border.
- The “Strip” connects all the vertices between each other with a zigzag line.
- The “Wide-area” method divides the topology into triangles evenly distribute on the area. This is not a so popular way but in some situations can be useful.
