NurbsSurface object to mesh object


#1

Hello! According to this information http://wiki.mcneel.com/rhino/meshtonurb nurbs objects can be converted to mesh objects “NURBS can be easily converted to Meshes at any time”.
Can I convert NurbsSurface object to Mesh object?
What algorithm is needed for this conversion? What are the functions of which classes are doing it?
Thanks for the answers )

Hi Eugene,

Generating meshes from Breps is something that is not included in the free openNURBS toolkit.

http://wiki.mcneel.com/developer/opennurbs/limitations

It is included in the version of openNURBS included with Rhino.

Hope this helps.

Probably a dumb question, but I am a newbie, as you know! Can I use “the version of openNURBS included with Rhino” you mention above in a standalone program?

No, you sure cannot. I’m sure there is something in the license agreement that prevents this. Plus, the version of openNURBS that ships with Rhino is dependent on Rhino.exe. Thus, it will only work with Rhino.
