Dear All:
I am using sampling plane to sample an internal plane.
But the sampled plane is always triangulated.
Because my mesh is all cubic, so the cutting face is always beaufiful, doesn't need to be triangulated.

how could I modify the code to make the triangulated off ?

Thanks.

Set triangulate to false in the sampling functionObject

Code:
    
    surfaces
    (    
        newPlane
        {
            type plane;
            basepoint (0 0 0);    // coordinates of basepoint of the plane
            normalVector (0 1 0);    // coordinates of the normal vector of the plane
            triangulate false;
        }
    )

Dear Cedric Van Holsbeke,
It seems that "type plane" is always triangulated, we can't select.
for "type patch", we can select triangulated or not.
So I think we should modify the code ,not controlDict.
Thanks for your reply.
