New member
Hi Guys, I have accuratly created the lines of my shape in CAD, i have then drawn over them in rhino, all I need to do now (haha ALL) is to get it to turn into a nice smooth surface, What tool am i best to use and is there a particular way i should do it to get my results?

screen shot below of my line work.

Thanks guys




Perhap, I am being a bit too late here.

But, then... this may help others with similar problems.

You can split the curves at strategic interestion using the 'split' command.

Then use 'Curve Network' to create the surface.
