I am trying to display a finite element mesh using SGI's inventor.
I have an array that defines all the coordinates of the mesh and an
array that defines the relationship between elements. I have examined
using quad mesh, as the elements from the finite element code are
quads. The problem I can't seem to decipher is; a typical finite
element code will display a unique color for every element. Often two or
more colors will be drawn in a single element. Is there a way to create
a quad mesh or anything similar that will allow the color to be set on a
element by element basis?
