Create smooth continuous surface models in T-Splines for ergonomic design.
Products claiming an ergonomic benefit are often derived from working with physical models. Björn Syse of Syse industriell design was developing an ergonomic mouse based on medical research. After beginning shapefinding with clay models, he knew early on he was aiming for an organic shape.
Because of the unique contours of the ergonomic mouse, modeling this with NURBS would be very tedious.
The solution: T-Splines
By using T-Splines for Rhino, Syse was able to model this mouse as a single smooth surface, directly from input curves, saving time that otherwise would have been spent aligning patches and smoothing the surface if this model had been generated using a traditional NURBS approach.
