Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino
At the moment, contour plots are visible only when the Scan&Solve View tab is active.
There have been requests for color surface mesh output in VRML 2.0 format for color rapid prototyping, and it is on the wish/to-do list.
Would a mesh "Baked" with color be adequate for rendering purposes, or do you have something else in mind?
I've been trying to find a means of outputting the color information, is a mesh baked with color something which is on the horizon? Is there another way I might be able to extract that information?
At the moment, there is no way to output the color information in a way that is associated with the model in all its 3D glory. This capability is "on the horizon".
Ow the mesh output for rapid prototyping would be a great feature, i certainly would make good use of it! I think that would do, i am no software genius so do not know what would work best, i guess if you start wanting to apply gloss etc things become more complicated... Thanks for the reply.
