For some purposes I need detailed mesh models of 2D and 3D shapes. No problem with 2D, so for Rectangle[] we get for example

DiscretizeRegion[Rectangle[], 
   MaxCellMeasure -> {"Length" -> #}] & /@ {0.2, 0.1}

enter image description here
For Sphere[] it's OK too:

But for Dodecahedron[] result is undesirable:

I need all the faces of dodecahedron to be disсretized detailed, just as rectangle above!
I’ve tried every way: MaxCellMeasure, BoundaryDiscretizeRegion, MeshRefinementFunction etc, all the same ((

Edit

I found that "Length" -> .2 work when we use PolyhedronData["Dodecahedron", "BoundaryMeshRegion"] instead of Dodecahedron[]. Of course, PolyhedronData["Dodecahedron", "MeshRegion"] still need to use "Volume".

HighlightMesh[
 DiscretizeRegion[
  PolyhedronData["Dodecahedron", "BoundaryMeshRegion"], 
  MaxCellMeasure -> {"Length" -> .2}, AccuracyGoal -> 1], 1]

  • Add the comment of @Syed
HighlightMesh[
   BoundaryDiscretizeRegion[Dodecahedron[], 
    MaxCellMeasure -> {"Length" -> #}], 1] & /@ {1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8}

enter image description here

Original

Set AccuracyGoal -> 5 and "Volume".

HighlightMesh[
 DiscretizeRegion[Dodecahedron[], 
  MaxCellMeasure -> {"Volume" -> .002}, AccuracyGoal -> 5], 1]

  • $\begingroup$ I would hae used DiscretizeRegion[Dodecahedron[], MaxCellMeasure -> {1 -> 0.05}]. But surprisingly, it just ignores the edge length constraint MaxCellMeasure ->{1 -> 0.05}. Maybe it is worth reporting it as a bug? $\endgroup$ Feb 12 at 15:18

    $\begingroup$ @HenrikSchumacher, yes, anyway the need to use Volume keyword for facet mesh looks strange $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I think you should really write Wolfram Support about this. They probably won't change this soon; but it is some feedback that they might appreciate. $\endgroup$ Feb 12 at 15:29
