The Mesh menu is available when the 3D Mesh module is active. The menu has one submenu: the Convert To submenu. The menu contains the following commands:

New 3D Mesh 
Creates a new, empty 3D mesh.
Lock All Nodes 
Since it is possible to accidentally drag points, nodes can be "locked" to prevent them from being dragged or edited by toggling on this command.
Find Duplicate Nodes... 
Selects nodes that are close to each other within a user specified tolerance.
Find Element... 
Selects an element given the element ID.
Find Node... 
Selects a node given the node ID.
Tessellate 
3D equivalent of Delauney triangulation. Creates a 3D tet mesh from mesh nodes.
Renumber 
Renumbers mesh nodes eliminating gaps in numbering. Optionally a node string can be created and used to guide the renumbering.
Repack Nodes... 
Refine Elements... 
Subdivides elements into smaller elements.
Classify Elements 
Element materials are assigned based on the solid the element centroid is within.
Isosurface Options... 
Brings up the Isosurface Options dialog.
Isosurface Volumes... 
Brings up the Isosurface Volumes dialog.
Zoom To Extents 
Frames the Graphics Window around the selected objects.
Convert To >
Mesh → 3D Scatter Points 
A new 3D scatter point set is created from the 3D mesh nodes.
3D Mesh → 2D Mesh 
Creates a 2D mesh from the upward facing elements of the 3D mesh.
3D Mesh → Solids 
Creates solids from each materialzone of the 3D mesh.
New Material Set 
Creates a new material set in the Project Explorer.
Export 
Exports a 3D mesh to a file (*.3dm, *.fem etc).
