Breaks non-triangular faces into triangles.

Triangulation ensures that faces are planar and non-holed. If four or more sided faces are not required, triangulation will ensure model is topologically correct. Among other benefits, this will improve rendering results, particularly when models include non-planar faces.

See the documentation for the parent node polyModifier for more details.
