generative modeling for Rhino
I have a problem with my little boat project. I draw the isocurves on the hull and now I want to extrude them to the surface normals, the 90° to the surface at a specific point, in this case the iso curves. At position 14 it is doing it 3 times and I am not sure if this are overall the 90° to the surface, or am i wrong? Does someone have a more elegant or a better way doing this?
Thanks for any help and hints!!
You are supplying more vectors than curves. Hence the extra 2 at the end. But also your curves are shifted 1 place to your vectors: Curves 1 to 14 vectors 0 to 15.
This is because you are taking the Normals from the original UV locations and the Curves are being selected in a List Item component.
Your second Image shows the result of only sampling the Surface at the Stern where the normal is different. If you want to change the angle along the length of the Long. then you would have to sample it at each frame and create an SDL line to create Sections for a Sweep1Rail component. ISO Curve = RAIL and SDLs = SECTIONS
Hey, thanks for your reply, I am not sure if I get it correctly, it is very complicate for me, ... I allowed me to attach my files. I tried it with the SDL line. I used the contour component instead. Well at the moment it doesn't work for me. Maybe you can give it a shot? That would be really helpfull cause my teacher uses a really strange way for doing this manually, ... :)
The Ning Social Network website doesn't let you access RAR files, would re-post them as ZIP.
oh, ok! thanks for the hint!
Something like this
Aah cool, this looks and works great and is more comprehensible to me! Now I have to figure out how to extend them until STERN and BOW. I noticed, if I change the shift list integer I come closer to the edge but not completely, is there a way handling this? Or is it to much effort? see attached pic, same in the stern area. Thanks for your help! :)
The Best method would be to prefix the Transom Curve and append a Bow Profile Curve to the list of Sections. The Bow profile would need to start in front of your last section (i.e. X+ not same X)
