@ Stefan: Thanks for the info. I guess I'll stick to Max's subdiv tools for MoI.

@ Max / Michael: If you could build something like this for MoI, I'd gladly pay an extra sum for it — http://masterviacad.com/powerpackoverview/PowerPackPro/page36/page36.html

Here's a video:

The main difference with Max's current subdiv tools is that not every quad polygon is converted into a NURBS patch, but the patches are generated based on curvature and detail level, resulting in relatively lightweight, uncluttered solids. T-Splines works that way as well.

Hi Metin,

i did a test with Max's subd script and the merge command in other software. I could bring down
the file size from 10 MB to 5,7 MB. Now i must find a way to replace the 3 and 5 edges pole areas,
because merge does not work well with them. If we had a least something like merge in MoI then
we would have a good start with MoI and Max's subd script, i would say. This is of course a time
consuming process, but IHMO worth to explore more.



Regards
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

Interesting!

A few questions:

1: How did you get the nice all-quad topology on the Stanford bunny?

2: Which tool did you use for the merge command?

Thanks,

Metin

Hi Metin,

the quad mesh is auto retopo from 3DCoat or was it ZBrush (trial) ZRemesher,
i did years ago. Can't remember wich one i used...

The merge command i used is from ArtForm Pro 4.0 NURBS Modeler module.
But i think others like Rhino etc. have a merge command too.

Regards
Stefan
