Folding in Rhino

Hi all,

Is it possible to import a file into Rhino7 from ArtiosCad or similar software and fold the creases in Rhino? an example would be folding a milk carton, or a box, tray etc.

Thank you and I appreciate your feedback.

Hi Stylianos - I am not sure what you mean - are you getting 2d patterns as the starting point?

Hi Pascal, Yes, i would get 2D drawings with scores and knives and i would need to fold on the creases to create the 3D.

Thank you

Hi Stylianos - I would say it might be tedious but if all the surfaces are planar and the edges are stright, it should certainly be possible - do you have an (simple) example?

A simple example would be of the attached. The 2d drawings folded on the creases create the dump bin on the right.
