Modelling Boat Sails

This follows discusions with Burr some time back about sails in general.

I hope the modelling ideas are self explained in the images.

Anyone with ideas on how to foldl/reef the shaped sail---images 1 and 2 ?

Hi Brian - something like bunched or folded cloth is going to be difficult to model in NURBS... The shape is just not defined very well by 2D profile curves.

That might be something more to do in 3D Coat or the like, or some animation programs actually have cloth simulation stuff with them that might work.

Thanks Michael.
As I feared.
Cloth simulation is so very complex and SLOW!

Happy New Year
