MetaBlocks2TSpline


Meta modeling add-in for Fusion360 (version 0.5.0)

MetaBlocks2TSpline is the new modeling system.
It merges the traditional CAD modeling and Meta modeling used in computer graphics systems
by transforming the Meta surface to the T-Spline.

Creates the T-Spline lattice from the Meta surface.

After clicking, calculates the T-Spline lattice to approximate the Meta surface automatically. Calculation finished, "Convert" command is invoked with the quad mesh. Press OK and the T-Spline is created.

to T-Spline result

Edits the selected Meta block. (Meta blocks are represented by the components named "MB ...". )
Different inputs are shown depends on the selected Meta block type.

Set the colors and precisions of calculation.

options inputs
  • Meta surface precision

    Indicates the precision of Meta surface approximation.

  • Meta surface triangle count

    All triangle count to represent the Meta surface.

  • T-Spline fitting precision

    Indicates the fitting precision to create the T-Spline lattice from the Meta surface relative to the Meta surface precision.
    (Meta surface precision, T-Spline fitting precision)=(3, 3) is the highest fitting precision and (1, 1) is the lowest.

  • Meta surface color

    Indicates the Meta surface color by RGB and opacity.

  • Wire color

    Indicates the wire color surrounding each Meta bolocks by RGB and opacity.

  • Reset

    Resets to default option settings.
