I’m trying to model a real life mountain site. I have a CAD file (which I exported into Rhino) that includes a bunch of curves (both closed and open, seperated into different layers). These curves are the mountain’s outline. In a different layer, are text objects which indicate the height of the site at that location.
I thought of a few ways of approaching this. The first one was to move the curves vertically according to the heights specified, then loft them together. (Or alternatively, making planar surfaces out of them and draping over them).
The problem with this is that a single curve can be at different heights at different points. To overcome this, it’s possible to manually adjust every control point. Since each curve has 200+ control points and there are 50+ curves, this solution would take a good week to do.
I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions or scripts that could help me with this?
