gmsh_stl2tet

PURPOSE ^

GMSH_STL2TET creates a tetrahedral mesh from an stl file

SYNOPSIS ^

function mdl = gmsh_stl2tet(stlfile, maxh, extra)

DESCRIPTION ^

GMSH_STL2TET creates a tetrahedral mesh from an stl file
 mdl = gmsh_stl2tet(stlfile, maxh, extra) where:
        mdl - EIDORS fwd_model struct
    stlfile - path to stl file
       maxh - maximum edge length (default: coarse mesh)
      extra - extra command line options to gmsh

 NOTE: Only one surface per file is allowed.
