  • surface is composed of a surface and vertices to which manual tie points are associated.
  • When creating objects, the vertices are associated with manual tie points, except for the animation trajectories for which no manual tie points are created.

For a polyline, the following are exported by default:

    • A file with the vertices of the polyline.
    • A file with the lines of the polyline.

For a surface, the following are exported by default:

    • A file with the vertices of the surface.
    • A file with the surface.
