### Evenly spaced objects by distance on surface?3 Replies

How would you go about Arraying or Paneling the tiny sphere 1 unit apart in U and V directions on the surface?Trying Array on Surface or going the Paneling route gives longer distances between the…Continue

I made a cut out of the corner of this pill shaped object.How would you go about repairing the corner again to the prior shape that matches the flow of the geometry as before? What would your process…Continue

"SOLVED* Mostly... Here is how I evenly spaced objects (in this case a sphere) on a surface by a set distance. 1. Extract an Icocurve from the surface. 2. Decide what distance you want to space the objects in the U and V directions. 3. Offset Curve…"

"That's what I thought when I viewed it from Top view. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to tell! Thanks!"

"Pretty hard to do on a doubly curved surface- you'll have to compromise somewhere, since the distances across the surface in each direction  vary a great deal in 3d; the array calculation is in 2d, UV space, where the distances are…"

### Evenly spaced objects by distance on surface?

How would you go about Arraying or Paneling the tiny sphere 1 unit apart in U and V directions on the surface?Trying Array on Surface or going the Paneling route gives longer distances between the spheres on the Mountain type shape in the middle of the surface. Is there a way to keep the exact spacing between each sphere throughout the shape?Thanks!!!!!See More

"If you have an irregular shaped hole like that and you can't use untrim to bring the missing parts back, your only real choice will probably be Patch with the tangency option  - the results may or may not be satisfactory for you according…"

"Thanks for the great explanation! I worded it wrong thou... Let's say you created an object and you were left with that hole in the corner of the pill shape. (you didn't trim it, it was just that way after creation). How would you fill…"

"Hi, In this case just UnTrim it. Trimming a NURBS object doesn't actually take anything away from a surface, it adds information in the form of a trim curve. If you turn on the control points, you can see the structure hasn't changed,…"

### Advice on how to Patch this hole?

I made a cut out of the corner of this pill shaped object.How would you go about repairing the corner again to the prior shape that matches the flow of the geometry as before? What would your process be?Would T-Splines make this much simpler too?I attached a photo to show the before and after.I also attached the RHINO File with both the Uncut and Cut object so you can try it if need be.Thanks for the help!!!!See More
