Graphics.DrawMesh

static function DrawMesh (mesh : Mesh, position : Vector3, rotation : Quaternion, material : Material, layer : int, camera : Camera = null, submeshIndex : int, properties : MaterialPropertyBlock = null) : void

static function DrawMesh (mesh : Mesh, matrix : Matrix4x4, material : Material, layer : int, camera : Camera = null, submeshIndex : int, properties : MaterialPropertyBlock = null) : void

Parameters

NameDescription
mesh The Mesh to draw.
position Position of the mesh.
rotation Rotation of the mesh.
matrix Transformation matrix of the mesh (combines position, rotation and other transformations).
material Material to use.
layer Layer to use.
camera If null (default), the mesh will be drawn in all cameras. Otherwise it will be rendered in the given camera only.
submeshIndex Which subset of the mesh to draw. This applies only to meshes that are composed of several materials.
properties Additional material properties to apply onto material just before this mesh will be drawn. See MaterialPropertyBlock.

Description

Draws a mesh.

DrawMesh draws a mesh for one frame. The mesh will be affected by the lights, can cast and receive shadows and be affected by Projectors - just like it was part of some game object. It can be drawn for all cameras or just for some specific camera.

Use DrawMesh in situations where you want to draw large amount of meshes, but don't want the overhead of creating and managing game objects. Note that DrawMesh does not draw the mesh immediately; it merely "submits" it for rendering. The mesh will be rendered as part of normal rendering process. If you want to draw a mesh immediately, use Graphics.DrawMeshNow.

Because DrawMesh does not draw mesh immediately, modifying material properties between calls to this function won't make the meshes pick up them. If you want to draw series of meshes with the same material, but slightly different properties (e.g. change color of each mesh), use MaterialPropertyBlock parameter.
