V4 and V5,
I have a compound curve shape brought in from a photogrammetry prog where I have had to make my own sort of point cloud, selecting marks on this surface and creating markers/points for them, so not exactly a cloud of them !!!. see attached.
I hope to get Rhino to place a surface or mesh through these points. Surface ideally as I am familiar with surfaces and solids etc . I did this without even checking that such was possible. Had no other choice anyway. No internal frames to follow, just a shape with some spatter on it I could use to orient photos and used rthe spatter spots as my point cloud points !
What command do I use to place a curvaceous compound curve type surface through my sort of point cloud, and unlike CAD generated point clouds, my points are very sparse, density varying. The file is attached.
How do I limit the extent of the surface ? I have curves I would like it to end at. As you can see they dont all join up, again it was what was possible in the photogrammetry. I have added points to some lines that ran across the surface to give further accuracy.
I need the method ideally for V4 though if its only possible with V5 then it will mean spending time altering V5 interface, have to do it sometime I guess but not when against the clock as I am at the moment !
