I’ve been using VSR for a few years now, and frankly I’d be lost without it. However, now that VSR is an Autodesk property, and with what we’ve seen of how often T-Splines gets updated now…I’m starting to worry that there won’t be a Rhino V6 version of VSR. After using VSR, one thing I really start to notice is how many Rhino commands create surfaces with excess points, for no good reason at all. Here’s a perfect example:
The surfaces being blended are untrimmed mirrors of a very simple degree5/1 single span surface. The VSR blend creates a degree 5/5 single span surface. Rhino’s BlendSrf creates a surface that’s degree 5/6 points in the V direction, but instead of “reading” the opposite edges and realizing they are both degree 5/6 points, it builds a surface that is degree 3 to within file tolerance, which in this case is 28 points!!! So from VSR we have a surface that is easily editable, whereas from Rhino the surface is too dense to do any sculpting with, if it was so desired. Thoughts?
