ShrinkWrap

Create a seamless mesh around open or closed meshes, NURBS, Geometry, SubD and even PointClouds!  This fantastic new feature in Rhino 8 is the ideal tool for creating meshes for,

  • Meshes for 3D printing.
  • A solid union mesh from multiple objects.
  • A solid mesh from 3D scan data fragments.
  • Meshes without internal self-intersections.
  • Offset meshes for shelling.
  • Meshes from point clouds when reverse engineering.
  • Valid closed meshes from broken or often hard-to-repair geometry.

Try ShrinkWrap in Rhino 8 for yourself

  1. Download Rhino 8 Evaluation for  Windows or  Mac.
  2. Download and open the  ShrinkWrap-Demo.3dm model. This is a 3D scan of a shoe last used in shoemaking. Notice the major gaps and broken, uneven mesh geometry. You can fix that with ShrinkWrap.
  3. Select all the objects in ShrinkWrap-Demo.3dmmodel (run -_SelAll).
  4. Run the ShrinkWrap command (the button can also be found in the Mesh Toolstoolbar). The ShrinkWrap dialog appears:
  5. Set the Target Edge Lengthto `0.10′. This option effects the density of the resulting mesh.
  6. Set the Offsetvalue to -0.05. Offset pulls the results of inflated points back to the original.
  7. Set the Smoothing iterationsto 10. A larger value will smooth out lumps and pits where the large hole in the toe was.
  8. Check the Inflate Vertices and Points This converts all non-mesh objects to meshes and then samples each new vertex location as a point cloud to construct the new mesh.
  9. Click the OK In a few moments, you should have a closed, watertight mesh.
  10. Ask questions and give feedback on the Discourse Forum.

Modelling Simplified


Rhino 8 adds new features to make modeling more playful and accessible. Combining these tools reduces friction for common solid creation/editing tasks. This allows you to stay in single Perspective view while modeling.

PushPull


PushPull simplifies and speeds up Solid Modeling by using curves to add or remove volumes from existing geometry.

Auto CPlanes.

Creating or changing CPlanes often disrupts the modeling workflow. Rhino now has Auto CPlanes, which auto-align to a selected curve, surface, mesh face, or subobject. Automatic CPlanes make it easier to work in a single 3D viewport, making it simple to draw on the face of an object.

 

Gumball.

Quickly Move, Rotate, Scale, Copy, Cut, and Extrude geometry without typing commands or clicking a toolbar button. This makes the Gumball a versatile direct modeling tool for concept modeling interior and exterior architectural forms, certain furniture styles, SciFi models, and working with SubD objects.

PushPull.

Grab a face and push or pull it, extruding or extending. PushPull speeds up modeling by using curves to add or remove volumes from existing surfaces.

 

Dynamic Vector Drawings

Vector Geometry Updates with Model Changes.

Generate dynamic 2D drawings of sections and elevations to use for drafting.

Reference in 2D Layout

The output of section curves, hatches, and background is organized in layers. With the layers panels, you can control the visibility of parts of your drawings. This allows you to view drawings in layout alone while hiding in modeling space. You can view sections without the background geometry in one detail while showing the background in the other.
