Wish: improvements to ReplaceEdge


#1

ReplaceEdge is one of the biggest time-savers for me. But I still spend a huge amount of my time untrimming and retrimming objects in order to make changes to models. (I often still have to untrim with keeptrimobjects on, then delete part of that loop and add in a new curve, and re-trim my surface. Or worse.) So, here are some wishes for improvements:

  1. ReplaceEdge (RE) should work on polysurfaces when possible (also, untrim should work on polysurfaces where possible) See attached example 1.
  2. When using RE with the ‘selectcurve’ option, user should be able to select a curve that extends beyond the edges selected to define the new surface edge. See example 2.
  3. When using RE with the ‘selectcurve’ option, user should be able to select multiple edges or curves to define the new surface edge.

Rhino 6 renamed this command. The new name is ReplaceEdge.

Thanks - I updated my post. And it looks like Example 2 is no longer an issue!
