I want to extrude a polyline as my underlying topology for polygons/facets that then I want to smooth as SubD.
Currently I have no way to extrude a curve (polyline in this case) as polygons. The closests I can get is as SubD. But the only output is a subD with creases at every knot of the polyline.
So Rhino created this (smooth mode, just all creased up):
instead of this:
Also I find very confusing to have to think about SUbD topology types in faceted mode as being a different thing that just plain old polygons. I think it makes more sense that either:
- any polygon object in Rhino should be able to SubDivide
- have a clear way to see that a polygon and subD in faceted mode are different things.
right now one of these two objects below is a subD object on faceted mode, and the other is a polygon mesh, can you tell which one is which?
