Rhino 4.0 - 3d Stair Rail Using Bldsrf With The Autochain / Tangency Option
The rails are polysurfaces 22 segments - one for each surface - so the picking isn`t very easy. Using AutoChain will speed picking to around 6 picks per profile. Most of the transitions between the edges that make the shape profile aren`t tangent so using the automatic chaining doesn`t help a lot with the default settings. If you set Angle Tolerance (in Doc Props) up to 10 or so, the almost tangent connections work so you can do about half and half automatic chaining and manual picking.
Tubular Objects: 2 Wrapped Spirals
The kind of thing usefull for architectural stuff or maybe ropes. Very very quick and easy to do you may add more spirals. Again this is the kind of things that you probably never been with polygon because of the number of facets and also because that kill the display fluidity if you have a few ones.
Straight Disorganized Chains
To build this chain you`ll need Rhino3D and 3DS MAX 2.x. The objective is to make the model with Rhino, all the great 2D stuff will make you able to make this quickly and easily.
