T-Splines for Rhino

T-Splines 3 For Rhino
Overview
Why Use T-Splines?

Creating organic and complex curved forms can sometimes be difficult in NURBS. T-Splines allows the user to break free from the rigidity of traditional surface modelling and create designs with a fast, natural and flexible workflow.

T-Splines 3 for Rhino helps designers create smooth, high-quality, watertight CAD models
and quickly achieve the right look and feel.

See the T-Splines Introductory Video to learn more about the power and simplicity of T-Splines.

T-Splines for Rhino

Because of it's ease of use, T-Splines is ideal for exploring forms and creating initial design alternatives, allowing the user to explore more design options and refine shapes more quickly. Because of it's tight integration with NURBS, the accuracy of T-Splines allows for production level CAD design and detail where necessary.

T-Splines is used by design professionals across a wide range of disciplines including Product Design, Architecture, Marine Design, Sculpture and Jewellery.

T-Splines Workflow
How Do I Use T-Splines?

Here are five different ways to model effectively with T-Splines 3 for Rhino:

From Primitives
Push and Pull method. Great for objects that
have an overall basic shape (cube, cone,
cylinder, sphere, etc.)

From TS Pipe
Pipe Curves using the TS Pipe Command.
Great for objects that can be represented as
a pipe in their simplest forms - for example
rings, cycle frame, chair etc.

From NURBS
Great for starting with untrimmed NURBS
surfaces - let T-Splines take care of joining
and curvature matching.

From Mesh or Sub-D Model
Import a mesh or OBJ file. Great if you use
Sub-D modellers or as part of a reverse
engineering workflow.

From Curves
A powerful workflow for all types of shapes.
The body and handle area of the model below
was modelled from curves in T-Splines as one
single T-Splines surface.

Further T-Splines Benefits

Modelling control
T-Splines introduces
unsurpassed control to surface modelling,
allowing designers to more quickly create
complex surfaces and manipulate them with
ease, yielding reductions in modeling workflow
times of 20%-50%.

Compatibility 100% loss-less conversion of
T-Splines surfaces to NURBS, as well as
conversion of polygonal meshes to T-Splines,
ensures full industry compatibility and
seamless integration in your design process.

Value T-Splines combines modelling methods
in one application that were previously only
available separately.

Surface quality T-Splines surfaces are
watertight by default and very easy to smooth, making them ideal for offsetting and
manufacturing.
