T-Splines brings organic modeling to Rhino designers
September 18, 2007
PROVO, UTAH — T-Splines, Inc. today announced the release of T-Splines 1.0 for Rhinoceros 3D, a plugin that makes it easier to generate precise organic models for complex surfacing applications in architecture, animation, industrial design, marine, automotive, aerospace and consumer product applications. T-Splines 1.0 for Rhino is available now at www.tsplines.com and many major Rhino resellers.
T-Splines for Rhino allows designers to easily create organic shapes from an input of curves, meshes, or NURBS surfaces. T-Spline models are differentiated from other new technologies by being 100 percent compatible with NURBS, the standard format for manufacturing and CAD. While T-Spline models can be as exact as any NURBS, the ability to push and pull on the T-Spline surface allows for the easy creation of complex, free-form shapes.
"T-Splines for Rhino has opened doors for organic modeling. Using T-Splines, we have designed and manufactured complex organic products in half the time it took us using our previous methods," said Ricardo Amaral, owner of Modellistica, a Brazilian rapid prototyping company.
"T-Splines, unlike Sub-Ds, solves the problem of providing organic modeling tools with the detail and accuracy of NURBS," stated Robert McNeel, President, Robert McNeel & Associates. "T-Splines is perfect for the Rhino organic modeler because it is well integrated into the Rhino interface and data model."
Designers can expect many benefits from T-Splines, including:
"T-Spline technology allows designers to lay aside the traditional restraints of NURBS modeling. T-Splines gives designers a level of fine-grained control over the surface not available in products that cost many times more," said T-Splines, Inc. CEO Matt Sederberg.
Case studies, tutorials, videos, a free 15-day trial, and more information are available at www.tsplines.com.
