Today we are very excited to release the first version of our new QuadRemesh command in this weeks Rhino 7.0 WIP [7-2-2019]
Download Rhino 7.0 WIP HERE
This new QuadRemesh command has the ability to create quad dominant meshes from Surfaces, Polysurfaces, Meshes, and even SubD objects. The QuadRemesh command also has the ability to generate quads along an XYZ symmetry axis of the object as well as accept guide curves as influencers for topology layout. QuadRemesh can also generate a SubD object automatically making it easier to convert your polysurface to a SubD object, or create remeshed SubD objects with smooth rounded corners for rendering. If you have used the QuadMesh command in the past you will find this new command to be more accurate and much faster.
You can find this new command by typing QuadRemesh or by clicking the QuadRemesh icon in the SubD toolbar.
As always we are looking to hear what you think about this new command and excited to see what you create with it.
Create multiple resolutions for optimized SubD conversion, UV Mapping, 3D Printing, etc.
Use Symmetry for organized topology.
Hard edge detection to preserve sharp corners
Remesh to SubD to soften hard to fillet areas for rendering.
Convert Mesh heightfields in to highly optimized SubD objects ready for editing.
Optimize topology and symmetry of scan data or triangulated meshes.
Use guide curves to influence edge loops and poly flow.
For developers and Grasshopper users you’ll be happy to know that Mesh.QuadRemesh() is available via RhinoCommon and I have attached a Grasshopper sample. QuadRemesh_Example.gh (873.2 KB)

Happy Quad Remeshing!
