RhinoResurf for Rhino 6/7 is a reverse engineering plug-in that gives Rhino the ability to reconstruct the geometry represented by the [[Non-uniform_rational_B- spline|NURBS]] surface of an object from a mesh or point cloud that describes it.
RhinoResurf Main Commands
RsFaceFromPolygon - RhinoResurf for Rhino can model free-form NURBS surface from polygon mesh (E.G .obj file format mesh), the continuity of the NURBS surface reach exact G1 everywhere.
RsPoints2Surf - RhinoResurf for Rhino can drape a surface over a point cloud with specified tolerance. Draping a surface is similar to laying a piece of cloth over an object. The surface is deformed to take the shape of the object along the drape direction. The drape direction is calculated automatically.
RsMesh2Surf - RhinoResurf for Rhino can convert an open mesh model to a single NURB surface with specified tolerance. The mesh is allowed to have interior holes in the model.
RsMesh2Surfs - RhinoResurf for Rhino can convert an open or closed mesh to multiple NURB surfaces. User selects a mesh, and defines a curve network by drawing lines on the selected mesh. Then just click one or two buttons, the selected mesh will be converted to multiple NURB surfaces with specified tolerance. The transition between any two NURBS surface patches reaches G1 continuity.
RsAutoNurbs - RhinoResurf for Rhino can automatically generate NURBS surfaces from a selected mesh.
RsCurves2Surf - RhinoResurf for Rhino can create a NURBS surface from selected curves (such as contour curve).
RsPointCloud2Mesh - RhinoResurf for Rhino can create a mesh from selected point cloud.
RsSplitCurveNetwork - RhinoResurf for Rhino can split curves by their intersection point position automatically.
RsMergeMeshs - RhinoResurf for Rhino can merge several meshes into one mesh body.
Powerful ability to fit large scale point cloud/mesh to a single face.
Fully automated NURBS surfaces generation.
Free-form NURBS surface modeling from polygon mesh (OBJ mesh).
