after exploring all options i am at a roadblock, how do i nice fill in these holesRIM.3dm (203.1 KB)
There’s no easy way to fill this. You needed to start this model with the center resolved first. Is it a domed, concave or planar center? There are some really good rim tutorials out there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0Dm4Jv3Nx0
As Jason said, this is pretty hard if unknown what the design intention is. I´ve just closed it using the information available.
- Created the red curves by extracting isopharms along U
- Created the light green blend curves between extracted curves
- The dark green surfaces can then be made with NetworkSrf
- Splitted the dark green surfaces in half along U by isopharm direction
- closed the remaining hole with the brown patch using tangency option

clement, this is what i want!!! you are a genius! i love this method! man you guys are the best!!!i would have never thought about this, thanks a million
There’s always the good cheat-
How did zou accomplish this Pascal_
Hi Mitviz… it was at least partly in jest - just cover the difficult part with a detail… but, I made some simple loft surfaces and used MatchSrf as needed to get the visible parts cleanly aligned. File attached.

Thanks Pascal, there is always some tricky way to do things in rhino, so sneaky:)
I keep having the same issues, i have another hole to close but i cant seem to figure it out, the center needs to be smooth like in the image but i cant seem to wrap my head around it in rhinoto cover.3dm (1.2 MB)
Hi Mitviz- in this case, if I understand things, I think I’d make two little transition surfaces to a planar center - I don’t know if I made it the perfect size here - and then use some MatchSrf to get everything trued up and ArrayPolar.

Thanks again Pascal! this is very close to what i am looking for, i would have never thought to do it this way
