QuadRemesh, a new feature in Rhino 7 WIP for Windows and Mac, lets you create a quad mesh from mesh and NURBS geometry.
Quad meshes can be:
- Converted to SubD objects (which can be converted to NURBS)
- Used in rendering and animation products
- Used for CFD and FEA analysis
- For finding principle curvature of forms
QuadRemesh found the principal curvature of this face, with the help of the guide curve feature.
Run the QuadRemesh command, or click the QuadRemesh button on the SubD toolbar:
Grasshopper users can use the new QuadRemesh component.
Rhino.Geometry.Mesh.QuadRemesh()is available in RhinoCommon for use in C# and Python.
See many of the options in action in this video.

Multiple resolutions for optimized SubD conversion, UV Mapping, 3D Printing, etc.
Symmetry for organized topology.
Hard edge detection to preserve sharp corners
Remesh to SubD to soften hard to fillet areas for rendering.
