NOTE: The ordering of points is VERY IMPORTANT. If the polygon is going to be extruded then the points must be in counter-clockwise order, otherwise the faces of the object will be facing inwards. See Orientation.

The following show examples of creating polygons from a list of points.

Defaults:

  • empty
const myshape = polygon({ points: [ [0,0],[3,0],[3,3] ] })
