I don't remember the bells and whistles, but it cut suuweet. Had a lot
thenthings nobody else had at the time, mainly trimming trimmed surfs. Back
fornobody could trim a trimmed surf. It had the sweetest vector direction
length thing in the world. Want to add some surf on the end of another,
ora check surf area or to extend the cut a bit, click a point, type in an
amount, then type in an angle, or click lines, etc... to get direction,
everfree hand it, And you get a visable arrow in the sweetest graphics Ive
seen.... and bam, simple surf extend.
Not unusual. Trimming is just a bounding curve on an existing parametric
surface (U&V between 0 & 1 inclusive). The base surface can be extended
beyond that interval, usually, but runs the risk of becoming degenerate or
developing singularities or becoming self-intersecting.
its a nurbs thing.
The way camax got around it was it would make a new surface from the
trimmed boundries, then hide the trimmed surf. That way it would seem like
you could trim the surface more than once.
I remember there would be lots of trimmed surfs blanked. But it didnt slow
the thing down.
