Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino
sorry for a banal question I just started using scan and solve.
how can I create a linear edge restrains on a partial sphere? (because I need a membrane supported, not locked)
Can you show us a screenshot of your geometry and how you'd like to restrain it?
Here's a little trick that might approximate what you are looking for:
This arrangement of restraints will allow small rotations about the outer edge, but you must choose a high enough resolution to have sufficient degrees of freedom to allow the rotation. Turn on the grid display and try to get three elements through the thickness.
You can also effectively increase the available resolution by exploiting the symmetry of the model, quartering it, and applying partial restraints on the cut faces:
Does this help?
Thank you so much! :)
