I’m looking at curvature analysis possibilities in Rhino. So far I’ve found many pictures that show nice and smooth curvature pictures. However, I need to be capable of extracting this information. I was told this would be do-able via scripting, so I ask here, how would one go about this approach, and has it been done previously?
Features to look out for:
Identifying min/max curvature directions on all points
Extracting information in radius for every point from an imported point cloud (in inches)
Pin-pointing the maximum curvature, thus the smallest radius found on a specific surface (surface imported)
Automating the process externally, thus externally I save a iges or stl file of a required surface, pass it trhough a black box (the automation script) and get a picture along with txt file of the curvature at all points from this file.
Thanks in advance!
