I’ve been playing with the idea of 3d sketching in rhino, and came across something interesting. All of this you can do in rhino right now.
(no comments on the crap sketch, I’m working on something here…) .
There are some other developments in the works that may make this a very cool feature assuming we can address some workflow needs-
changing the wacom pen settings as shown on the image allows you to run the sketch command, then draw lines.
a few things,
for a sharp corner you need to draw one line, lift then draw an other line-
the bend tool is great to start shaping curves once you lay them down in an ortho view-
gumball is great for moving points or curves in 3d space-
rebuild may be useful depending on mw many points are in your curves.
layering a sketch, then locking it and changing its color to light great is great for overlaying
moving the cplane is great if you want to drop a curve in a specific location in
I set up aliases for : sketch, setcplane origin, bend, and gumball relocate.
things I think we need,
modal undo so you remove last drawn curves-
modal cplane tools inside the sketch tool
modal rebuild inside the sketch tool
