I’m trying to create surface from curve network. Upon using the network surf command, it highlights the problematic curve. I delete it, then it highlights another problematic curve right next to it. If I delete that, then it highlights another one which is right next to it. This keeps on happening.
What am I doing wrong?
How can I generate a nurbs surface from these curves?
How do I detect what exactly is the problem in my curves?
I am attaching the file.

I don’t know why the curve sorting is having trouble with these - it looks to me like they are correct. Selecting one by one in order (NoAutoSort option) does work… I’ll get this on the pile for a developer to look at.
Oh wait - @archz2 - there is a block in there that you get if you window everything - leave that out and it works.
1 block instance, 156 curves added to selection.
How do I find that block in a crowd of 156 curves?
Hello - use
SelCrv to select only the curves, use the
SelectionFilter, or use
SelBlockInstance to locate and delete the block.
Thanks a ton. That worked!!
Edit: Okay, well, I was able to select the curves now,
I got a box having options for tolerances, edge curves and interior curves. My terrain got four alphabet tags A, B, C, D on each of the outer edges. After I pressed enter (accepting the default settings as set by Rhino as I am using this feature for the first time ever), my laptop fan started moving very fast, I waited patiently even thought the Rhino window faded,
the RAM usage shot up to 10GB for Rhino as seen in the Windows task manager, then I got this message after waiting for 30 minutes
What should I do now?
With this many sections, you might try
Patch instead - that might give you a better and lighter result, depending on the accuracy needed. Increase the number of UV to eg. 78 (the amount of cross sections you have in each direction).
Edit: I did your surface as
NetworkSrfand it is insanely complex because of the amount and complexity of the cross sections. I strongly suggest you either rebuild the sections first or use
Patch instead.This screen grab shows the lower fifth of the square with isocurves on…
Thank you so much! Patch works so fast and easy!
