The Polygon(group) List represent a surface using facet or polygon elements, connected entities of 3 or 4 control points. The polygon list the simplest data structure that can be used to represent a surface using only linear shapes. The Polygon list can be rendered and contours can be generated from the surface.
The Polygon List entity cannot be created directly. However, any of the other surface entities can generate a Polygon List.
The Polygon List cannot be edited interactively. However, individual facets can be deleted, split or merged.
