isoparms to curves
on Mar 27, 2008 at 12:02:38 am

Hello,

maybe a stupid question, but it would help me enormously... Doing a architectural design.

Suppose i have a mountain in 3D. This mountain would have horizontal isoparms. How can I make ring-surfaces of these horizontal isoparms?

I think I can ask my question differently: how do I make a isolated curve that I can work with, from a horizontal isoparm?

Tanx

The 'Edit Curves > Duplicate Surface Curves' command should do the trick.

If you don't want to use the actual isoparms of your surface, but want to create your own curve, use a flat plane and the 'Edit Surfaces > Intersect Surfaces' command to create a curve where the plane intersects your mountain. Then 'Duplicate Surface Curves' as above.

Hope that helps.

also if you want to have a new circular nurbscurve passed on a grid mountian terrain, create a new circular curve in the top view and projected onto the existing nurbs grid surface and then duplicate curves like Steve suggested.
