DELFTship forum Hull modeling Curves and intersections don’t match Re: Curves and intersections don’t match


I do not understand why intersection (ex. station) looks straight as planned, but the curve at the same place can look akwardly bent following the surfave interior edge form. Even if I have a planar surface the curve is wierd in some places.]

You have to understand the difference between a station and a control curve. A station is a planar intersection of the surface, therefore the resulting curve will always be planar.
A control curve is a curve connecting the limit points, which basically are a projection of the control points on to the surface. Even if all the control points are located on the same plane this does not mean that the points when projected onto the surface are still on that same plane because the normal directions in the control points can be different.

However usually the differences are quite small, except when you use faces with more or less then 4 controlponts. The more points you use for a face, the more twist there will be in the resulting surface. When looking at your model I suspect you have used faces with quite a large number of points. You should avoid this at all cost.
