I’d like some help mapping an Erwin Hauer mesh onto a surface, please. The surface is a wrist splint modelled from a 3D scan of an arm. I’ve managed to map the mesh geometry onto the splint but I’m unable to constrain it the surface boundary at the top of the splint where the thumb and finger cutouts are. I’ve attempted to use the Dimension Surface and Plane Surface tools but I’m stuck with where to go next!
Also, some advice on the following issues too, please:
I’d like to use the point attractor tool (or a better method) to vary the density of the mesh at specific points on the splint surface.
I’d like to use the Weaver Bird colour gradient function to vary the global colour of the mesh once it’s mapped to the splint surface (see picture attached)
Have you tried the WIP Pf subD box morphing? It is pretty fun. Also the quad remesher and options are available already in the WIP grasshopper from McNeel hidden in Mesh > Triangulation (they have no icons)
Hi Laurent, I’m re-visiting this model and the definition you kindly made for me and I can’t work out how to re-orient the tiles when they are morphed on the surface. In your definition, when the pattern is repeated, it seems to be flipping by 90 degrees. I wondered if you could advise how to stop this from happening. I’ve attached pictures of what I would like to achieve, thanks a lot!
I see, that’s really interesting, thanks Laurent. What would be your advice for solving this issue? Would adjusting quad density still leave me with the same issue or are there tweaks to the geometry that would allow me properly orientate the box morph? Thanks!
