Good evening everyone,
I’m quite new to rhino…
I’ve been hitting my head against a wall for a few hours now and thought it’s about time to ask the question here. A little info about the project…
Trying to make a 3D printable model of a neighbourhood. Right now I’m preparing a the models of all the buildings (Around a 100-150 buildings). Of course I’m not doing this manually… found a helpful file with most of the buildings done already, the only issue was that it was a .max file. So I converted this to .obj and then imported into rhino.
So here’s the issue I’m currently facing… the result of the import was a bunch of poly and mesh surfaces forming the individual buildings. I firstly deleted all the mesh surfaces so I was only left with the poly surfaces. But when trying to cap each building I realised that most of the buildings have non-manifold surfaces and thus my attempts to cap them are unsuccessful.
Is there any way to reconstruct the surfaces (kind of like shrink rapping them)? Or perhaps a quicker fix?
I also have a .dwg file of the model available. Not sure if that would be a more viable option… I attached an example of one of the buildings with a non-manifold surface. Keep in mind that there are 100+ buildings so manually going in and adjusting the control points does not seem like a viable option for me.
Appreciate the help!
