Surface mesh display

This display object is responsible for rendering the polyhedral mesh that is produced by a Construct surface mesh modifier.


Surface color

The rendering color of the surface.


The degree of transparency of the surface.

Smooth shading

Enables the interpolation of normal vectors between vertices of the polygonal mesh (also known as Gouraud shading).

Cap polygons

OVITO computes the intersection of the surface with the periodic boundaries of the simulation cell. Cap polygons are created to close the cut mesh again. This option enables or disables the display of the cap polygons.
