In the October 8, 2019 Rhino WIP there are 3 new commands for setting SubD appearance.
The goal of this work is to make it easy for you to see what you need to so you can do what you want to.
Please let us know what works and what doesn’t.
- Creamy - Set the appearance of every SubD to be “Creamy” (smooth surface is displayed).
- Crunchy - Set the appearance of every SubD to be “Crunchy” (SubD control polygon is displayed).
- CreamyCrunchySwap - Swaps the Creamy/Crunchy appearance of every SubD.
- Using Creamy and Crunchy to change SubD appearance does not change the SubD objects. Creamy and Crunchy are simply two different ways to visualize the same SubD object.
- You can use the Gumball and PointsOn commands with any SubD using any appearance.
- You can change the SubD appearance while running a command by typing Creamy, Crunchy, or CreamyCrunchySwap on the command line.
- When a model is opened, every SubD is creamy. We did this so that when models are shared, a user not familiar with SubDs or Creamy and Crunchy, will always see the SubD surface geometry.
If we learn that the Creamy / Crunchy approach is generally useful, then we will add additional user interface that reports the current setting and lets you change it. If we learn that it doesn’t work, we’ll remove it and try something else.
