Hello,

I am using engrid 1.2 under windows and try to do the following tutorial:

https://github.com/enGits/engrid/wik...and-enGrid-1.2

When I try to "create/ improve surface mesh" the error "only triangles allowed at the moment". To this point I followed the tutorial as good as possible, but I am stuck here.
Honestly I donīt exactly understand what to do at "edit surface parameters" (compare Fig. 11 & 12 of the tutorial).

Does anyone has an idea or an instruction how to simply mesh a volume/ cube? Or is there a reasonable manual about engrid?

Thankful for any help.

Simple mistake. I forgot to turn the faces of the geometry from blender into triangles (ctrl + t). After doing this everything worked fine.

Regards,
