Say I create a Rhino model with a box, bezier surface, and sphere, each with its own transformation matrix. Now I’d like to export this model information as parametric objects (i.e. a file encoding “model has: a cube of dimension <1,1,1> with transformation T1; a bezier surface with control points <0.5,0.5>, <0.5,0.5> and transformation T2; a sphere or radius <1> with transformation T3”). Ideally I’d just be able to export my model as a X3D file (as it supports these object types natively), but Rhino is triangulating all geometry on export. If I can’t retain this parametric information through standard export formats, can I traverse the model database to generate such a file myself? Any pointers on what parts of the API might be relevant? Is this information even recoverable from within the API?
Thanks in advance!
