, binary=True)#

Write a surface mesh to disk.

Written file may be in a ASCII or binary PLY, STL, or VTK format.

This is a a simple wrapper for :pyvista:``.

  • filename (str) – Filename of mesh to be written. Filetype is inferred from the extension of the filename unless overridden with ftype. Can be one of the following types (.ply, .stl, .vtk)

  • binary (bool, default: True) – Filetype. Inferred from filename unless specified with a three character string. Can be one of the following: 'ply', 'stl', or 'vtk'.


Binary files write much faster than ASCII.
