I would like to convert this surface to a mesh in order to attempt to use Ivy to unroll it, add taps, and build it from matte board. I’m not too familiar with meshes. I think of them as surfaces that are more difficult to edit and extract data from, but I’m sure that’s incorrect.
In my particular case, I’m not sure how well this will work with the fact my surface has several holes in it. This could be as simple as plugging my joined Breps into one mesh component or a lot more complex. Each tutorial of Ivy I’ve watched, the author appears to be working from a mesh that has visible fold lines on it, yet whenever I try to create a mesh from this surface, it yields one smooth surface (no ridges/fold lines).2018.04.10_mcneel_forum.gh (17.2 KB)
