In the example map we use the module ShowGrid to see only a given element of the unstructured grid; the Renderer output is shown below for the options

  1. tetrahedrons (use Preferences > > Clipping Plane to see inside the cube, or use the parameter "pos" of ShowGrid to move the example tetrahedron into the visible region)
  2. hexahedrons
  3. pyramids
  4. prisms
