Okay so problems like this have been driving me nuts over the course of the last six months as I’ve learned Rhino, but I’m finally at the point where I think I just need some damn help on how Rhino handles this kind of stuff. I’m mocking up a concept for a mixing bowl, and I’m attempting to add a spout feature. The way I’ve done this is by slicing away a section of the bowl and using surface lofts to create the two spout surfaces and closing the top with surface from edges. Everything looks correct but adding fillets to smooth out the shape is basically impossible. if the FilletEdge command produces anything at all it creates fillet surfaces embedded within the still intact main surfaces, and when I try to use the trim tool to clean it up…the trim tool just doesn’t react. I’m constructing this geometry with Rhino’s very own surface tools, where exactly is the problem here coming from?
This is my biggest problem with Rhino I think so far. Commands like Trim or Create Solid will just fail without even an error message, and you just click and nothing happens. I’m spending way more time than I should be just trying to figure out why tools don’t work without any damn feedback.
