The Coons Mesh generator provides the user with a simple yet effective tool to enable free-form mesh development by defining the four side-curves enclosing a region in space.

Usually found in CAD software, Coons Mesh is based on the Coons surface definition (Wikipedia) which requires four curves to meet at their reciprocal end points and defining the mesh vertex positions by bi-linearly interpolating the discrete positions across the curves.
Workflow
To adapt to user’s individual workflow the Coons Mesh generator can operate using the standard approach pinning input curves as generator’s children or to populate the proper curve’s link in the Attribute Manager
