Defines a mesh defined by Bézier patches. The first array is a list of vertices, and the second array defines the patches for the mesh by indexing into the vertex array.

  • Type - Patch mesh type: rectangle, triangle, or N-patch.
  • Degree - Degree of the variables in the curve equation.
  • Basis - Basis type of a high-order patch surface.
  • nVertices - Number of vertices.
  • vertices[nVertices] - Array of vertices. See Vector.
  • nPatches - Number of patches.
  • patches[nPatches] - Array of patches. See Patch.
  • [ ... ] - Any .x file template can be used here. This makes the architecture extensible.

The patches use the vertices in the array of vertices as the control points for each patch.
