>>> examples.plot_cell(grid)

List the grid’s cells. This could be any number of points.

>>> grid.cells
array([4, 0, 1, 2, 3])

List the grid’s points.

>>> grid.points
pyvista_ndarray([[0. , 0. , 0. ],
                 [0.5, 0. , 0. ],
                 [0.5, 1. , 0. ],
                 [0. , 1. , 0. ]])
>>> grid.celltypes  # same as pyvista.CellType.POLY_LINE
array([4], dtype=uint8)
