Tutorial 15 - Fill hole with surface on G1 continuity with neighbor patches


In this tutorial we will show how to fill a hole with surface by selecting surface edges on the condition of G1 continuity to neighbor patches.

Command: RsFillHoleBySurf

Step 1 : Start Rhino 6.


Step 2: Select Importů from the File menu. Import the geometry model as shown in the following picture:


Step 3: Run RhinoResurf command _RsFillHoleBySurf , select the surface edges.



Step 4: Click right mouse button when you finished the surface edge selection, you will see a new surface filled the hole, and a dialog shows , in the dialog , the control point value "U: 31; V:21" shows the control point number of the new surface. This dialog will let you refine the surface with reasonable parameter setting.

Also you will see a tolerance report shown in Rhino prompt. This report said the maximum distance between the surface edge and new surface is 0.121723, the average distance is 0.00191; the maximum normal angle between the new surface and neighbor patches is 0.339422 degree , the average angle value is 0.042617 degree.

Step 5: If you want to reduce the maximum normal angle value, set the 'max normal deviation' value as '0.1', and click button 'Apply' .


 

Step 6: And you will see the tolerance report in Rhino prompt, the tolerance value is reducing.

 

Step 6: If you want to make the tolerance value reduce more fast, you check the button 'Add new control point'. The program will find reasonable position to insert new knot and increase reasonable control point , this is helpful for seepd up tolerance reduction.

 

Step 6: You click button 'Apply' again, you will see the surface is updated, the control point number increased to be 38X27.

 

Step 6: And you will see the tolerance value report in Rhino prompt, the maximum normal angle tolerance reduced to be 0.09039 this time.

 

Step 6: You can continue to click 'Apply' button again and again for getting better result. The following picture shows the surface after increasing the control point number.

 

And when you analyze the surface, you will get the following picture and you can see the surface quality.
