Hi @dalelear , I need a little help here:
I am working on a SubD tool to make some quads from some curves, but the whole “curves” vs “SubD friendly curves” is not very user friendly for ongoing projects for us I am afraid.
(And “ToSubD” could benefit from a tolerance warning IMO, so a user doesn’t think that it was converted all right when it wasn’t.)
So back to topic:
How can I convert a Degree3 curve to a SubD friendly one?
I can’t find a tool, so are there any other logics I can use to make sure my subD fits within tolerance?
Not being able to combine SubD and normal Nurbs is a big problem, and remodeling everything to use SubD friendly stuff is a no go, so the subs needs to be Nurbs friendly for us
I wish SubD used the same logic as Nurbs when it comes to controlpoints, but it is neither close to Degree 2 nor Degree 3, and we need to use curves that already exists, so how can I convert that? Is it a simple tool?
Thanks for any help!
Here is a file that showcases my problem:
- I made curves that are SubD friendly
- turned on controlpoints and traced with NORMAL degree 3 curves.
They LOOK IDENTICAL.
- Then I extrude them and one becomes a nurbs and the other a subD.
They LOOK IDENTICAL
- until I try to convert the nurbs one to SubD.
Then it doesn’t look identical any more:
On the right you see a subD that fits the curves perfectly, that’s what I am after only that the input should be unsubdfriendly, so I need to figure out how to convert it
Is it possible?
