Instance Property


A name associated with the geometry object.


var name: String? { get set }


You can provide a descriptive name for a geometry object to make managing your scene graph easier. Geometries loaded from a scene file may have names assigned by an artist using a 3D authoring tool. Use the SCNSceneSource class to examine geometries in a scene file without loading its scene graph.

Geometry names are saved when you export a scene to a file using its write(to:options:delegate:progressHandler:) method. They also appear in the Xcode scene editor.
