Mesh to 3D solid conversion plug-in for Bricscad
Mesh To Solid for Bricscad is a plug-in for Bricscad which gives Bricscad the ability to convert a mesh to a 3D solid.
General solid modeling software, such as Bricscad, does not have methods to manipulate or modify mesh objects. Solid modeling operations such as boolean operations (union, subtraction, intersection), extrusion, offset, taper, shell, etc. are possible only with solid or surface objects. Moreover, there is no way to convert a mesh into a solid so that the solid modeling operations can be carried out on it. Mesh To Solid for Bricscad solves this problem by giving Bricscad the ability to convert a mesh to a 3D solid.
Meshes in Bricscad are of two types: PolyFace Mesh and Polygon Mesh. Mesh To Solid for Bricscad can create a solid from both these types of meshes.
Mesh To Solid for Bricscad is designed to be extremely user friendly and easy to understand. To convert a mesh into a solid simply run the "MSConvertMesh" command and select the meshes you wish to convert. Truly, software made simple!

Sycode Software Licensing Terms
Our licenses are single computer licenses and are locked to each computer they are installed on. Basically, the license key is specific to the computer's Host ID (the MAC address of the computer), and will not work on another computer. The installer picks up the physical MAC address of the network card connected to the computer which is basically “Ethernet adapter Network Connect Adapter”. So unless you change your network card, the key will always work even if you reinstall your operating system. If your internal network is periodically assigning a different Host ID to your computer, then please find a solution for this with your IT department.
