Tutorial 7 - Automatic surfaces (solid) generation from mesh
In this tutorial we will learn how to generate surfaces from mesh automatically by using command RsAutoNurbs.
Step 1 : Start Rhino.
Step 2: Select Import… from the File menu. The import file dialog box is displayed. Browse for the file femur.stl (typically located in C:\Program Files\Rhinoceros 4.0\Plug-ins\RhinoResurf\ Samples\) and click Open from the Open dialog box .
Step 5: Click button Curve network in the dialog box. The Curve network will generate automatically. This curve network is calculated by analyzing the curvature feature of the selected mesh.
Step 6: Zoom out the model. We find a bad curve that intersect with another curve. So we click button Smooth curve , select the bad curve, then click right mouse button, the bad curve was smoothed. (see the following picture)
Step 7: In order to let curve fit the mesh much nicer, we increase the Control point number from 6 to be 7.
Step 8: Click button Create surface , the mesh will be fitted to be multiple surfaces.
Step 9: Use Rhino command CreateSolid to convert this closed model into a solid.
