This also means that attributes ``` ```which were on the face domain are transferred to the point domain in the dual mesh. ``` ``` ``` ```.. warning:: ``` ``` ``` ``` The Dual Mesh node only works on manifold geometry. To work with non-manifold geometry ``` ``` it's best to remesh the geometry first. ``` ``` ``` ``` ``` ```Inputs ``` ```====== ``` ``` ``` ```Mesh ``` ``` Standard geometry input. ``` ``` ``` ```Keep Boundaries ``` ``` Keeps the non-manifold boundaries of the input mesh in place, by creating ``` ``` extra geometry, and avoiding the dual mesh transformation there. ``` ``` ``` ``` ``` ```Properties ``` ```========== ``` ``` ``` ```This node has no properties. ``` ``` ``` ``` ``` ```Output ``` ```====== ``` ``` ``` ```Dual Mesh ``` ``` Standard geometry output. ``` ``` ``` ``` ``` ```Examples ``` ```======== ``` ``` ``` ```The *Dual Mesh Node* combines nicely with triangulated meshes. In this case ``` ```an Ico Sphere is used, which is made up of nice and evenly spaced triangles. ``` ``` ``` ```.. figure:: /images/modeling_geometry-nodes_dual-mesh_icosphere.png ```
