Join Dave Schultze for an in-depth discussion in this video My egg is broken! Details on curved surfaces, part of Rhino: Tips, Tricks & Techniques.
- [Instructor] In this video,…we work with creating details on curved surfaces.…You'll find out that the strategy that you used…for making details on flat surfaces…just don't work anymore.…So we now explore the flow command.…Let's zoom in to this finished cracked egg,…and you'll notice that that crack detail…goes all the way around and does not repeat…in any direction.…So that's done the correct way.…For reference, let's look at the incorrect way.…So this was created by having a Polyline…from the front view.…
It was projected straight forward and backward.…It created this blue curve which is on the surface…that was used for a split.…Here's the problem though.…This thing looks perfectly symmetrical…and not organic at all.…So what we're about to do…is take this Polyline,…so what I'd like to do next is figure out a way…to get this Polyline to wrap around the surface,…and therefore it would be unique and every point…and not have this repetition from front to back.…
Let's go ahead and do that now.…I'm going to turn off the Design One layer…

- Making a flexible duct
- Building details on round pipes
