Does anyone else experience problems watching video clip?

like imagine you create a cube and then a biger cube. you overlap them and using the tool from rhino, you will extrude the smallr cube from the bigger. the result is a solid element that was cutted.

so, that way the element will looks real and more eassy to handle or change.

yes, thanks you. ill try something new and will let you know.

like creating a solid element that at the moment you cut it , instead of showing just the surfaces that form the element and an empty interior, it will show a solid piece that was cutted.

H Gabriel. What do you mean by solid elements exactly? Do you want a Rhino solid element or are you looking for an extruded element that does not have a wall thickness such as a tube that we extruded in the demo?


RhinoBIM uses the light entity and extrudes a profile from the library of profiles along the curve and oriented to the surface. If a profile that you want does not exist in the libray you can create custom profiles of your own under the MANAGE tab.


Does this help and answer your question?

is possible to make those lines as solid elementsns instead of void element that you just estrude?

Hello Nagi, The curves are projected onto the surface. This can be done with a plane or curved surface. Watch the webinar RhinoBIM Debut part 1 for more information and also you will find under the HELP tab at the top of the RhinoBIM menu the manual that explains this.


Thanks for using RhinoBIM. How is it working for you?

were the lines projected or extracted from the surface.  I need to know how to do a diagrid on a sphere. or complex surface.

next time be more specific.
