    Subdivision Volume

    Hello I'm curious if its possible to find the volume of a subdivision? Will I have to convert it to another object? Thanks Len
  2. I'm having trouble using the subdivision tool and nurbs to make the shape I want. I've been able to import a rhino shape and convert it to many different things to alter its bits. But its not perfect and its not extremely useful because I can't always make it do what I want when it comes to scaling it up and down to make it seem like they are in fact separate layers of foam and concrete. Right now its just a shell. What is the best way to make this shape? But with a thickness and the ability to gather the volume of it. If i knew a mathematician and a python coder...could I get this done easiest with Marionette? I have a basic understanding of marionette. I just don't have the math or coding skills to make it what I want. The firm I work for needs to go in the marionette direction...and I'm hoping this answer will give the kick in the butt we need to spend the time to transition into the world of marionette/Bim/IFC integration. Thoughts? Thank you Please point me in the right direction if i'm in the wrong place. Is there an easy marionette equation that could do this for us with the right parameters? Len
  3. I am thinking to use subdivision tool for modeling a character. Has anybody have any experience with it. I have used Autodesk Maya and Blender earlier for similar purposes. I would really appreciate suggestions and comments!

    Subdivide a Subdivision?

    Hello, is there a possibility to divide a subdivision (no pun intended) into two smaller subdivisions? Or to convert two subds into one? Anthony
  5. I have just used two days to model a chair using subdivisions. The improvements in VW 2017 are massive. As one of the few remaining general purpose users of VW, I often feel snubbed by new releases, since many basic drawing tools have not been improved in more than a decade. But with this release, subdivision has become truly workable It is great, that I can change meshes into subdivisions. I wish, I could go the opposite way as well: By clicking in the OIP, I would like to be able to change the viewing mode of any subdivision, so that I would only see the cage. Then, if I changed it into a mesh, I would only get the geometry of that cage. Ideally I would then be able to go back and forth between mesh and subdivision in order to refine the design. So the question is: Can I get that?
