Creating surface from mesh

Hey all, looking to create a single surface from this mesh. I heard it can be difficult depending on the shape of the object. I have no clue how to convert between the two, so any advice would be appreciated.Levels 8.4 PM.gh (30.6 KB)

Have you tried MeshtoNURB?

Hello,

the only advice I could give is stop wasting your time on this one. Remodel it manually from scratch in Rhino. If you can’t model it in Rhino, learn surface modelling first. Only then start thinking about automating it with Grasshopper. MeshToNurbs does not convert a mesh into something better. It just converts mesh faces into surfaces, which doesn’t help you at all with curved shapes. If you need a true mathematical representation, plugins like Weaverbird are pretty useless.
