Can Rhino model any object which polygonal packages like Maya are able to create?


The command you need to use is SubDFromMesh
That gives you the Rhino-nurbs-SubD result.
And you want to convert that to nurbs then use the ToNurbs command.

You also have a SubDivide command that just subdivides the original mesh into 1 or 2 subdivisions.
(can be repeated as many times as you want)




I would like to learn about Boolean operations in SubD (mesh). What in the end are the edges? Can anyone try to subdivide the mesh? If possible, with screenshots …


You’re good! Of course you are acutely aware. I’m just being a tongue-and-cheek wise arse, as usual. Thanks for being a good sport! I know you are a good thinker…

You still describe a rat-race, IMO, that the human race is inherently a part of, to one degree or the other, and perhaps inextricability attached. Such is life. Good to have a niche you’re happy with, regardless.

Now get back to work!!! :wink:

The lease on my EV is up year end. VW is on the right path finally, as hard as that may be on those involved. I just might want one to get from here-to-there in, eventually, to continue greenwashing… @Lagom. Unless I fall in love with the iPace first…wait, that’s a rat-race move…:wink:


There is always Mars…:slight_smile: Short TLSA, apply the ‘winnings’ to a ticket…


Mars? Why not go deeper into space, for example, all the way up to Uranus?

Don’t buy a VW and support emission reduction cheating and greenwashing.

Pick out the best most beautifully designed deck chair on the Titanic…



Good one! :slight_smile:

At this point, electrons from my cold dead hand…

You can have the dino juice to yourself. No longer interested in the electric propulsion is worse argument…aka greenwashing.

Now, when you figure out how to “beam me up”, please do tell. I still need to get around.


Elaborate. I’m a little slow!

=) I’m amazed the the concept of falling in love with a car, even tongue-in-cheek, can persist… I see debris that is slightly different than the next bit of debris, all of it a distraction.



So true…might be why I choose to lease them??? Easy come, easy go.

I did once have an irrational relationship with an XJ8. Bad breakup. Oh well, stuff happens.


And I am amazed by NOT falling in love with a car… Imagine hom many hours the average Joe has to spend working to afford one, so when understanding how much freedom is lost in obtaining one then you better love it! :smiley:


Chinese Volvo, then?

Now, I thought you guys on the other side of the pond had a ‘cooler’ and ‘softer’ view of punishment and forgiveness?

@TomTom can hunt down Winterkorn, ay?

There is an all expenses paid vacation trip to (near) Disney World waiting for good 'ol Martin. Case closed? Why punish Tom and his pals?


I would try to buy no car and use the most sustainable solutions - public transport, car-sharing, cycling and walking.

The most sustainable car is the one neither built nor driven.


You do know that it was no iceberg that sank the Titanic, but the deckchairs sliding unstoppably towards the bow.

And such lovely, comfortable chairs, too.



the Judas of modern times, while long transport boats with junk you don’t need and planes filled with people going to places they have no reason to be, are running non stop while polluting far more than any short traveling carpark ever will… :wink:


As stated before…

The whole classic SubD workflow (regardless whether mesh or limit surface based) tries to avoid Booleans at any rate. One plans ahead and if one really needs to cut a hole one needs to rebuild the cage, so that it remains valid. You’ll find many videos on that topic.

Here’s a very simple sample which shows that Boolean operations break the topology – the resulting border triangles make things all lumpy when subdivided.


Sensible when feasible! I thought that’s where you were going.

The ‘desirable’ owned car is likely toast anyway, eventually, for the masses. Mobility via self driving public transport, and ubiquitous uniform pods, all powered by the sun.

It’s going to be glorious…:wink:

Don’t forget! Glorious guaranteed minimum income so the world can take advantage of all those jobs no one gets to, I mean has to, do any more.



Yup. They held up well, too. Non-FSC mahogany though ; )
