Webinar 3/7: reintroducing T-Splines for Rhino

Postby Matt Sederberg » Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:18 pm

Hi guys,

Autodesk CEO Carl Bass has agreed to host a webinar with me on Thursday, March 7 to talk about the future of T-Splines for Rhino and what exactly that means for our T-Splines community, both in terms of product development and engagement with the community.

This will also be a chance to have a live Q&A with him. I hope you can attend.

As part of the webinar, we'll spend some time talking about what we've been up to over the past year. Carl has agreed to show some of the T-Splines models he has personally made, as well as other work he's done.

I'd also like to take a slide or two to show what our community has been up to over the past year.

So, here's what I'd like you to do: reply to this message with an image showing a project you've done in the past year using T-Splines (or, you can put this in our gallery and link to it from this thread.) We'll take as many images as we can and feature them in the webinar!

Hey All!

I have been remiss in posting my work over the last while. Apologies, some health issues. Oddly enough I don't even think of T-Splines as T-Splines anymore, its just another (integral) tool in achieving the end product in my game. Its become my invisible helper, my friend that lives under my middle mouse button, the magic elf that helps me finish impossible tasks.. doing what a good tool should do..

I will post a few renders of some of the projects I have been on, some are all T-Splines, some are a mix of T-Splines and regular polysrfs. Figured I'd throw it in here to let you know I am still alive and modelling!

Good ol TsPipe!

My spine operation "reminder" ring (my wife wont let me make it, says its too creepy...)

and of course ongoing "special projects", technically NDA disallows posting the completion of this project until after the event, but this particular iteration was voted down, so it can be posted :), This job could NOT have been completed without Tsplines, and in fact it cant even be opened completely at one go in Rhino4, only since acquiring R5 am I able to see it in its entirety in TSP and NURBS mode, opened and meshed in "low" mesh mode it chunks in at 9.2gb of memory usage ;)



Just a quick sampling to let you know I am still cooking the splines in the upside down country!

Kindest regards to all
Chris Botha.

(ps @Matt, now I am on the mend, hopefully I can finally get to playing with Fusion)

Hey everyone. I really look forward to the Webinar Matt. It will be like old times. What would we have done without Tsplines. It's my main tool these days in Rhino to do all the organic style of designs that are so popular right now. I sure hope you guys can continue to develop it as a Rhino plugin. Attached are just a few things I've been doing with Tsplines.

Thank You!!!!

Kevin Fertenbaugh :D

As Chris Botha already said, T-Splines has been a tool I am using daily. There are very few jobs I am not using at least one element in t-splines. It would be impossible to think how to work in Rhino without it anymore!

Therefore, I decided to post just one job I did for a design competition last year. I got lots and lots of other models just made in t-splines so I had no idea what to post from them.

Great news by the way and hopefully this thread will show how deeply integrated t-splines is already in the Rhino community!

wish you guys all the best

I made this part some time ago, but was one of the biggest challenges and I'm sure it couldn't be done without T-Splines and Rhino.

Have a good webinar team. Visiting the International Jewelery Show in Hong Kong has me missing out & hoping there'll be a recorded clip later.

Sounds like TsElements has a limited future....
OK so you are going to re-engage with the community and are bringing back webinars. That's good but only every 2 months! Why? I don't understand why Autodesk want this product to have such a low profile. Since they took over its like it got put in the bottom drawer under the old Sports Illustrated issues. Is money tight for PR or are they not really that committed to Tsplines for Rhino as they say? :?

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the webinar enthusiasm. As to the frequency - as far as I know, compared to other Autodesk products, none others have webinars more frequently than twice a month....
