### nurb isocurve optimization

Hey guys, wondering if there is a way to adjust the uv curves to match the surface with better "paneling". I don't mean planarizing. just more uniform for mapping operations of textures. To have them…Continue

### surface from curve netwrok9 Replies

Hey guys, I am trying to create a cut sphere with this kind of uv division(as shown in the flat surface) as opposed to the classic ball uv division which is what I get with all the surface tools I've…Continue

### designing single surfaces to resemble a half sphere5 Replies

hey guys, wondering if anyone has an interesting idea on how to approximate complex trimmed surface as a single surface. say I want half a sphere. I can split the edge curve into 4 and build a uv off…Continue

### brep to mesh for fea solution

Hey guys, I was wondering what the most effective solution is to creating a mesh from a brep. My berp is coming from surfaces which aredistorted and therefore using their uv parameters is not…Continue

"There must be a mathematical solution for the isocurve you want. With this equation you calculate the coordinates of "n * n" points which feed Surface from point component, and U = n. Try to search the equation  on internet. I have an…"

"Wow, very cool, thank you.  I reduced the minimum 'UV steps' slider value from ten to two, which gives the fewest number of sub-surfaces.  Affects the shape of one model much more than the other."

"No "problemo", I reuse what I did, put another sphere bigger and shifter it, project control points on the new bigger mesh sphere, use point deform (not a real sphere) and mesh from point (look like a sphere) and it is done."

"Hey thanks a lot for your reply. The problem is that I want more than half a sphere.. as show in the newly attached picture. It should be logically possible like the "surface from network of curves" but that doesn't work for it. "

"Here are 2 ways of doing that. It could be also possible to have less than a half of sphere. "

### surface from curve netwrok

Hey guys, I am trying to create a cut sphere with this kind of uv division(as shown in the flat surface) as opposed to the classic ball uv division which is what I get with all the surface tools I've tried so far, does anyone have an idea how I can achieve this?Rhino solutions would also be welcome. I am really lost on this one. I've tried network of curves but still get the classic ball uv..Thanks a lotTalSee More

"Yes , but as a conclusion to my answer above, decreasing surface quality to get one is surface with high cpcount is the wrong  approach I would do it like this: Create a simplified single surface above your shape. Create your curves onto…"

"on that note is it possible to define a surface by boundary curves and many u,v curves? not just 3,4? like specifying a10*10 grid .(given that they share a node connection"

"Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. I will surely have a look at your plugin. I would have thought it to be a common task as any paramteric operation of a surface requires a single surface while most modeling is either done as polygons or poly…"

### designing single surfaces to resemble a half sphere

hey guys, wondering if anyone has an interesting idea on how to approximate complex trimmed surface as a single surface. say I want half a sphere. I can split the edge curve into 4 and build a uv off that. Is there a method for doing something like this? I find myself twisting and turning and morphing single surfaces just in order to match a curvature of a trimmed surface.. Perhaps I'm just not the best Rhino modeler in the world.See More

### LESS IS MORPH

I would like to begin a format where we can share our knowladge and create real life architecture and design components . Designers alongside with the programmers! I am currently taking a studio in digital architecture and if there is one things that screams out is the lack of technical knowladge architects have as to programming .

I wish to create a dialog in which we all can share our knoladge and dreams and create together parametric designs which will be a collective journey. I… Continue
