# rhombicDodecahedronMesh

Below is a demonstration of the features of the `rhombicDodecahedronMesh` function

## Contents

## Syntax

`[Fc_Q,Fc_T,Ft_Q,Ft_T,Ct_Q,Ct_T,Vt]=rhombicDodecahedronMesh(r,nCopies)`

## Description

Creates a rhombic dodecahedron mesh where r sets the radias and nCopies (a 1x3 vector) sets the number of copies in the x, y, and z direction. The output consists of:

Fc_Q, Fc_T: the quadrilateral and triangular face cell arrays (1 cell entry per element).

Ft_Q, Ft,T: the quadrilateral and triangular face arrays

Ct_Q, Ct,T: color/label data for the face arrays

Vt: the vertex array

Plot settings

fontSize=15; faceAlpha1=1;

## Creating a mesh of rhombic dodecahedra

r=0.5; %Radii, results in a width of 1 nCopies=[3 3 3]; %Number of offset copies [E,V,C,F,CF]=rhombicDodecahedronMesh(r,nCopies);

Plotting results

cFigure; hold on; title('A mesh of rhombicDodecahedra','FontSize',fontSize); gpatch(F,V,CF,'k',faceAlpha1); colormap(gjet); axisGeom(gca,fontSize); camlight('headlight'); drawnow;
