Using quadremesh to reverse engineer a scan


Hi thanks for the video. That’s really interesting. Is there any similar function in Rhino5?

not really at least not in that exact manner. reverse engineering topography was a tough domain before the dawn of quadremesh :smiley: have you got an example? in any case it will be definitely more work and might not reach the quality.

Thanks. I am remodelling a heart model. I used a ‘mesh2surf’ trail pulg-in. It worked very well. however, it has been expired now. I am looking for methods of reversing in Rhino 5.

does not sound too complex, building it from scratch might take a few minutes?

He might be talking about a scan of an actual (human) heart?

ok maybe, in case it has to be accurate, i think it would take 2 hours maximum? less time than shopping around forever trying to be lazy :slight_smile:

Hi Kyle - you should do another breakdown for a last also with a bottom pattern (the bottom shape) too. I think that in cases likes these, when the aim is to get a low clean topo, so there aren’t any bumps etc. in dense areas, it is maybe best to split into two pieces. In last making, one of the most crucial aspects is the accuracy of the feather edge (the bottom edge), and again for it to be clean.

cool idea-
I’d need to do some research on how this is made…
I’ve never designed a last before… do you have an reference I could work from?
