Tutorial 11 - Fit mesh to NURBS surface by specifying shape type. ( Command: _RsMesh2Surf in RhinoResurf for Rhino 4 or 5)

 


The command _RsMesh2Surf in RhinoResurf for Rhino 4 or 5 helps user fit mesh to NURBS surface by defining the shape type of the mesh model. The following picture (Fig. 1. )shows the dialog for this command. There are 6 shape type options for user to select:
1. plane :  for the open mesh model which is homeomorphous to plane.  (Fig.8)
2. cylinder: for the mesh model which is homeomorphous to cylinder. (Fig.13)
3. semi-shpere: for the mesh model which is homeomorphous to semi-sphere. (Fig.11)
4. 4corner: for the mesh model which is homeomorphous to plane and has 4 sharp corners in the boundary line. (Fig.6)
5. 3corner: for the mesh model which is homeomorphous to plane and has 3 sharp corners in the boundary line. (Fig.2)

6. 2corner: for the mesh model which is homeomorphous to plane and has 2 sharp corners in the boundary line.(Fig.4)

RhinoResurf also provide another command _RsMesh2StarFace for the mesh model which is homeomorphous to plane and has n (n>4) sharp corners in the boundary line. (Fig.15)

Option 1: Shape type - 3corner



Fig.2 a mesh model which has 3 sharp corners in the boundary line

 


Fig.3. a 3-line degenerated surface created from the mesh, an edge was folded in one corner.

 

 

Option 2: Shape type - 2corner



Fig.4. a mesh model which has 2 sharp corners in the boundary line


Fig.5. a 2-line degenerated surface created from the mesh, two edge were folded in two corners respectively.

 

Option 3: Shape type  --  4corner



Fig 6. a mesh model which has 4 sharp corners in the boundary line

Fig.7 a standard untrimmed surface was fitted from the above mesh, the two holes were filled.

 

Option 4 : Shape type - plane



Fig.8. a mesh model which is open mesh and homeomorphous to plane, although it is complex.


Fig.9. a trimmed surface was fitted from the above mesh.

 

Option 5 : Shape type - semi-shpere

 


Fig.10. a mesh model which is open mesh and homeomorphous to semi-sphere

 

   
Fig.11. a semi-sphere surface was fitted from the above mesh

Fig 12. the surface is degenerated with one edge folded in one point.

 

Option 6 : Shape type - cylinder



Fig.13. a mesh model which is open mesh and homeomorphous to cylinder

Fig.14. a cylinder surface was fitted from the above mesh. The surface is periodic in one of U-V direction.

Option 7 : Shape type - n(n>4)corner(or starface)

Fig.15. a mesh model which is homeomorphous to plane and has n (n>4) sharp corners in the boundary line.

Fig.16. a star surface composed of 6 polysurfaces was fitted from the above mesh.
