Subdivision section


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I started using the subdivision tools and I think it is great! 

I have created a "simple" subdivision object (in green) with some waves and now I would like to section it every ie 100mm (like the brown one). I used to know how to do it in Rhino but I am sure it is possible in VW as well but I cannot find how! 

Any idea on how to do this?

Hi Giulio

if you to convert the Subdivision to a Mesh first, you should be able to as Hans-Olav stated.

That is what I have done here.



Hello Gualterino,

thank you for your suggestion. It worked!! 

now, is there a way to make the mash solid inside like in your picture? because at the moment it has only the outside skin and it is empty inside.

Hi Giulio, 

The reason why you have those openings instead of a closed solid, is because your mesh is overlapping it's self in the corners. I would suggest breaking it up in two parts; use a a extruded polygon for the top section use subdivision for what's underneath. Then, you can convert the Sub to a mesh and do a solid add with the polygon. From this point everything should subtract as expected.
