Curvature Analysis, blowing up?

#1

Hi All, I’m fairly certain that these cones should have no double curvature as they are developable, but the Gaussian curvature analysis seems to be suggesting otherwise.

Is it a graphic or meshing issue somehow?

thanks!

Hi! There is an Adjust Mesh button in the Curvature Analysis widget. Try different Maximum angle and Maximum edge length value. It looks like your render mesh is set to “Jagged & faster” (Rhino Options > Mesh).

Thanks 0netech,
haha, I took another look and noticed the settings (which seem to populate these values once clicking “auto-adjust,” and noticed the difference between blue and green is quite literally 1x10^-31 … I think I can live with that level of tolerance…!
