pdepoly opens the PDE Modeler app and draws a polygon. If,
instead, you want to draw polygons in a MATLAB® figure, use the
plot function such as
pdepoly(x,y) draws a polygon with corner coordinates
y. If the PDE Modeler app is not active,
it is automatically started, and the polygon is drawn in an empty geometry model.
The optional argument
label assigns a name
to the polygon (otherwise a default name is chosen).
The state of the Geometry Description matrix inside the PDE Modeler app is updated to include
the polygon. You can export the Geometry Description matrix from the PDE Modeler app by using the
Export Geometry Description option from the
Draw menu. For a details on the format of the Geometry Description
pdepoly([-1 0 0 1 1 -1],[0 0 1 1 -1 -1]);
creates the L-shaped membrane geometry as one polygon.
