installation

it is recommended that you use browserify to use this module

npm install voxel-mesh
npm install browserify -g
browserify -r voxel-mesh > voxel-mesh-browserified.js

usage

var Mesh = require('voxel-mesh')
var voxelData = require('voxel').generator['Hilly Terrain']
var mesh = new Mesh(voxelData)
mesh.createSurfaceMesh()
threeJSScene.add(mesh)

voxelData and meshingAlgorithm are required, scaleFactor defaults to new Three.Vector3(10, 10, 10).

returns the generated surface mesh. material defaults to new THREE.MeshNormalMaterial(). after calling this method your mesh will also have .surfaceMesh populated with the new mesh

returns the generated wire mesh. hexColor defaults to 0xffffff. after calling this method your mesh will also have .wireMesh populated with the new mesh

convenience method for adding the currently generated meshes (either surfaceMesh or wireMesh) to a three.js scene instance

convenience method for setting the position of the currently generated meshes (either surfaceMesh or wireMesh)
