Video tutorial on a new Rhino 8 command: ShrinkWrap (in German)

What is ShrinkWrap?

Charles Panke from Filou created this video in German on ShrinkWrap, one of the new Rhino 8 features.

Using this command, you can create a watertight mesh from surfaces, solids, meshes, SubDs, or any combination, whether open or closed. And if you have point cloud data, ShrinkWrap can create meshes directly from that, too.

What is ShrinkWrap ideal for?
ShrinkWrap is the tool you choose to create:
  • Meshes for 3D printing
  • A solid union mesh from multiple objects
  • A solid mesh from 3D scan data fragments
  • Meshes without internal self-intersections
  • Offset meshes for shelling
  • Meshes from point clouds during reverse engineering
  • Valid closed meshes from broken or often hard-to-repair geometry
ShrinkWrap video tutorial
In this video you will learn:
  • How to create an editable geometry
  • The use of ShrinkWrap for the modeling of radii
  • How to create complex wall thicknesses in NURBS
Please note: German is the language used throughout the tutorial.
