Wish: "Match surface" to preserve the flow of control points

A short video showing the idea behind preserving the UV structure of the control polygon and adjusting only the normal position of the 2nd and 3rd rows of control points.

I would love for this ability to preserve the control point flow to be added in “Match surface” on Rhino 7. :slight_smile: It should try to match the surface only along the normal direction of its control points while preserving their flow (angles between the control polygon lines).

Your example is very good and perfectly shows the benefits of preserving the control point flow of the matched surface. Without such ability, the 3rd row of control points of the matched surface get heavily distorted despite using the “Preserve isocurve direction” option.

plus 1 for this options it is true that the third row of control points must be perpendicular to the adjacent edge to achieve perfect g2 continuity …
but in some this completely spoils the good homogeneous distribution of points.
this option will have a checkbox . for the needs

I vote for it.

Many models I had to work on for students in jewellery are driving to complex matching scenarios.

As pointed by @Rhino_Bulgaria such a scenario is not limited to cars

To my humble opinion, there should be no debate regarding the need to improve the SrfMatching command in Rhino…

Everything is visually demonstrated.

Thanks for that.
