I have imported a SVG path:

SVG imported path

now I'd like to convert this path into triangles. For example below the path is converted into two triangles.

enter image description here

How should I do? Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ Exactly. The shape above should convert into 2 triangles, but I'm happy even if is not optimized and creates more triangles than necessary $\endgroup$ – michelemarcon Oct 27 '16 at 10:19
  • $\begingroup$ I still don't get it. Something like this? s14.postimg.org/yha6ppupd/2016_10_27_14_50_59.png $\endgroup$ – Highstaker Oct 27 '16 at 11:56
  • $\begingroup$ You may also elaborate your question using grease pencil by drawing what you want to achieve, if it's drawable. $\endgroup$ – Highstaker Oct 27 '16 at 11:58
  • $\begingroup$ @Highstaker eventhough your suggestion does not break up all triangles I think it might be ok. $\endgroup$ – michelemarcon Oct 27 '16 at 12:25

First you have can convert your "curve object" to "mesh object" (select your object, Alt+C, convert mesh from curve/meta/surf/text). Then you can do triangles in many ways. By hand, go to edit mode (press Tab) > press Ctrl+Tab > mesh select vertices > then shift click on 3 vertices you want to do a triangle and press F. An automatic way, can be, with the object converted to mesh and en edit mode, press A until you select all object > press F to fill > press Ctrl+T to triangulate.
