I actually have two questions, the first Q is
- why can’t I (position-) Match the following planar surface (green) against the slightly curved (gray) vertical surface (nearest in front):
Fig 2. The edge of the green top surface won’t connect with the vertical edge (the small arrow points to a narrow “overhang”). No option in the dialog does away with the overhand:
- My second question is if there’s any command in Rhino which can trim and convert a surface to it’s simplest structure within the new boundaries. In Alias there seems to be a command named TrimConvert doing just this (possibly also increasing the complexity of the structure if need be & allowed by the user).
In Rhino I know of only the two Shrink commands, of which neither typically adjust the trimmed surface to curved edges as the final untrimmed srf, leaving it to the user to extract the surface boundaries to be Lofted or Sweeped etc.
The #1 could serve as an example where the surface could benefit from such a command.
