Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino
As a temporary solution to the issues in http://www.scan-and-solve.com/forum/topics/scan-solve-for-surface-and
I think it would be sensible to support solid meshes in SnS.
As the offset operation usually works a lot better for meshes than for surfaces, a common approach to creating a solid from a surface is first to mesh it, then offset it and tick the 'solid' option.
However, at the moment this solid is not useable inside SnS. Would it be possible to include this in future versions?
Kris, have you tried SnSMesh? Does it do what you wanted? We would be interested in getting your feedback. Also, we are looking for user models that we could use for demonstration purposes. If you have anything that you are able to share, please let us know. Thank you.
