I have been working in rhino for a few months now and am a little stumped on this one.
Using the smash tool I was able to flatten a poly surface of a shoe into a file I could cut out of paper on a laser cutter. This cut piece of paper could then be folded into the form of the shoe in real life. This all works just fine.
I was hoping to be to do the same thing to a scan of the shoe. I would have a full color model of the shoe, from the scan (with photographic likeness), which I could turn into a polysurface and then smash. I was hoping there was a way to smash it and retain the photographic surface of the full color model. Is this possible? This way I could inkjet print the smashed image of the shoe and then lasercut that paper to the exact same shape that could then be reassembled.
Is this possible in rhino?
