Description

For all domains currently selected, the Intersection function will find all cell-cell intersections. This includes intersections for domains which self intersect, as well as cells which are co-planar. A total number of intersections is listed in the panel and the intersecting cells are rendered in the Display window.

The Function frame provides controls and a total of cell intersections.

  • Color: Click on the color icon to open the color chooser panel to select the color in which the intersecting cells will be rendered.
