# MeshPrimitives

MeshPrimitives[mreg,d]

gives the graphics primitives for cells of dimension d in the mesh region mreg.

MeshPrimitives[mreg,cellspec]

gives the primitives specified by cellspec.

# Details

• The primitives returned have the form prim[{p1,p2,}] where pk are points with explicit coordinates.
• The mesh region mreg can be either MeshRegion or BoundaryMeshRegion.
• The cell specification cellspec follows the standard form described for MeshRegion and BoundaryMeshRegion.
• MeshCellCount can be used to find the maximum number of primitives for each dimension.
