Benefits and Description

The user interface and workflow for the Match tool is similar to that of the Repair tool. The Repair tool requires that surfaces with more than 4 sides be replaced by multiple 4-sided patches before they can be repaired. With the Match tool, you can replace poor quality n-sided surfaces with good quality n-sided surfaces in imported geometry without the need to split the surface in 4-sided patches.

The Match tool simplifies repair of surfaces with more than four sides by eliminating the requirement to split n-sided surfaces into multiple 4-sided surfaces. This shortens the repair process for n-sided surface patches.
