Nurbs Surface

Recommended Posts

Ok, I would like to be able to select a node in a Nurbs surface and manipulate it.

Played with most of the Nurbs nodes and I can get a grid but cant select one and move.

help Please.

Hello Alan

 

I have the same problem. 

Have you found a solution? 

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Double-click on the surface to get to the Reshape  tool (or simply select in the tool bar). 

Select direction of movement in the Mode bar. 

Drag the control points. 

Be sure to be in one of the fixed views when editing

 

The control points are typically located outside the shape, so editing can be quite frustrating and imprecise in VW. It doesn't help that you can't nudge individual selected points or use the Move command on individual points, or edit more than one object at the time (VW really needs an update here to at least be comparable with other 3D editors).

 

What does help a little is to convert the NURBS into an Interpolated surface, where at least the controls ar on the actual object.

Hello Claes 

 

Thank you for your help! 

 

I think of a puppet node when solving it. 

 

Do you know your way around there too?

 

 

Have a nice evening.

😀 Puppet node is the DeepL term of a marionette node when translated from German.

Unfortunately not. I do work with fairly advanced NURBS modelling on a daily basis but pretty much never in Vectorworks. Sorry.

Hello everybody

 

Is there a node that does the opposite of Extend Surface?

 

Have a nice day
