Tutorial 1 - Convert a mesh to a surface


 >

In this tutorial we will convert a surface from a selected mesh.

Step 1 : Start Rhino.


Step 2: Select Import… from the File menu. The import file dialog box is displayed. Browse for the file pipe.stl (typically located in C:\Program Files\Rhinoceros 6\Plug-ins\RhinoResurf\ Samples\) and click Open from the Open dialog box .


Step 3: Zoom to the extents of the drawing (View->Zoom->Extents). You will find the mesh from pipe.stl imported into the current model. Click Single Surface from mesh->Dialog box from the RhinoResurf menu or type RsMesh2Surf at the Rhino command prompt or click icon at RhinoResurf toolbar.



Step 4: The Rhino command prompt ‘Select a mesh to create a nurbs surface' is displayed. Click left-mouse button to select the displayed mesh, then click right-mouse button after you selected the mesh. The dialog box Single surface from mesh is displayed.

 

Step 5: Click the Apply button in the Single surface from mesh dialog box. The program will run. After a while, a surface will appear. The prompt Surface updated.max deviation=0.499050. average deviation=0.125502 tell you the tolerance between the surface and the selected mesh.

 

Step 6: If the deviation between the surface and the selected mesh is not desired, select the Max Tol choice box and choose a smaller value (such as 0.3), then click the Apply button, the surface will be updated under the constraint of the smaller deviation.
 

Step 7: Click the Trim check box to trim the surface by the natural boundary line of the selected mesh.
