What's the difference between Shape and Mesh

Noticed I can create a Cube with Shape and Mesh but not sure what’s the difference.

Hello @wnger!

Shapes can be thought of as a container for geometry. The role of this container is to present the geometry for interactive display and manipulation.

Shapes which are formed and manipulated by the position of control vertices (or CVs) are called control point shapes. The control points are attributes on the shape which are usually arrays of points. Control points become interactive – they can be selected and manipulated, by associating the control point attributes with a component.

A mesh is an example of a shape which stores large and detailed data models representing real objects using several planar triangles.

I hope that this helps answer your question! Thanks for reaching out!
