AddPolygon works only for convex polygons

I tryed to use MeshBuilder.AddPolygon to draw a concave polygon and it does not work as expected. In fact the method uses a TriangleFan in case of more than 4 points. That is ok if the polygon is convex but does not work in the other cases.

I think Delaunay triangulation is something that can be used in this case.

Is it implemented in the toolkit?

Does exists any work around?

Right, the AddPolygon method only works for convex polygons. A simple polygon triangulation method has been implemented in Geometry\CuttingEarsTriangulator.cs, maybe you can use this?

Great! It works perfectly!!

I was wondering why you don't use it in the mesh builder for polygons. I understand that the computational time is higher but it works in every case.
