Rhino Resurf case study

Rhino Resurf is a plugin for Rhino that can be used to fit untrimmed NURBS surfaces to scanned data.

Rhino Resurf was recently used for a project by 3Dtotal, a laser scanning service company in Portugal. In this architecture digitalizing project, they used RhinoResurf to post-process the scanned data. They created NURBS surfaces from the scanned point cloud with the precision of maximum tolerance = 0.01cm by using the RsPoints2Surf command in RhinoResurf. After texture mapping, they got a real 3D wall.
