Hello, I’m working on the geometries which have double-curvatures.
I want to put tapes on them. The tape will have a uniform width.
Here’s my proposal; If I want to connect two positions on the surface, then the shortest path would be the best centerline of the tape. I compared between geodesic curve and “curve on surface”. And mostly the geodesic curve has the shorter length.
I made a pipe, and got the intersection curves. With them, I made a ruled surface for my tape.
Do you think if it’s in a good way? Or Is there a better solution?
Thanks for your answers!
