currently working on my first job in Rhino 7 with SubD.
Overall it works great, but I hit some niggles:
When I reflect a SubD, I am unable to create creases on the centerline edges.
I can select them alright, but when I hit the “Add Crease” button, nothing happens.
Since I work a lot with creases, that’s a bit of a bummer, since I need to remove the reflection, apply the crease and re-create the reflection.
Is there a trick to get this working or could this be improved otherwise?
I’m also not really happy about the inability to work on the greyed out side. It’s not so much a problem in perspective view, but it makes working in planar side views more complicated, since one has to toggle to the front/back or left/right depending on what side is editable.
And a feature request: I’d really like to have edge weights to be able to have semi-creased edges. For instance in Blender it’s a continuous float value between 0.0 and 1.0, where 0.0 = no crease and 1.0 is the same as the current sharp crease in Rhino. The in-between values allow for increasingly sharper edges.
This is very handy since it allows for what could be called “organic fillets” that have nice tangency and flow with the overall SubD structure.
The ultimate implementation would allow for changing weights along edges, so one can go from fully smooth to fully creased in an organic manner. I’d use that to death
Could work a bit similar to variable filets, but for me it would be enough to be able to set the weight per vertex along the edge.
(And yes I know that I can add more edges to get the same effect, but that starts to get messy fast and is pretty hard to modify later on).
Thanks a lot!
