Surfaces/Polysurfaces into Dynamo


#1

Hi Dimitrie, thanks for this great plugin.

I’m having quite a lot of success importing points, polylines, curves and meshes to Dynamo, however surfaces won’t import , i guess this is known and possibly just the way surfaces are imported into dynamo, they do show on the web viewer so the data is going up the cloud but coming null into Dynamo. Was wondering if there is a way to get them through through though. There are some kind of surfaces that dynamo can read well (SAT or rhino file surfaces go fine into dynamo using Sat import or Rhynamo), but it would be great to send over Speckle could do it.

Cheers!

Heya @jf15! sure. we’ve lost some steam over the summer, but for sure it’s something that will have to make its way into the core offering. We’ll get back to it!

The viewer works with a hack, essentially every brep/nurbs surface being sent via speckle gets a mesh representation too; ideally we would streamline all this jazz in the future.
