Just trying to understand the logic and behavior of the Smash command.
I am smashing a bunch of double curved surfaces, here is one of them ( I am attaching a top view to show the geometry pattern mapped on the surface, the 3d view is irrelevant in this case):
What I discovered is that following the orientation of the surface, the smashed output is oriented/mirrored differently… (this makes sense but perhaps a small note regarding this matter in the command help would be nice for the general public).
However, and this is the part I don’t get ! Regardless of the surface orientation, Rhino mirrors the output following the X axis.
The correct (or the smashed output I am searching for is the following) …
I noticed also, sometimes depending on where I click on the surface, the output orientation is different.
Any tip or clarification would be much appreciated ! ??
