This option allows rebuilding any given surface by sampling and interpolating the resulting points.

Inline mode usage:

rebuildSurface -h
Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
rebuildSurface –s <surface> -p <uDegree> <uPoints> <vDegree> <vPoints>
Rebuild the selected surface
rebuildSurface –c –s <surface> -p <uDegree> <uPoints> <vDegree> <vPoints>
Rebuild the selected surface, keeping the original surface.
rebuildSurface -noTrim –s<surface> -p <uDegree> <uPoints> <vDegree> <vPoints>
Rebuild the selected surface not trimmed.
rebuildSurface –c -noTrim –s <surface> -p <uDegree> <uPoints> <vDegree> <vPoints>
Rebuild the selected surface not trimmed, keeping the original surface.

Interactive mode usage:

  • Selected surface.
  • Degree along the U-dimension.
  • Degree along the V-dimension.
  • Points along the U-dimension.
  • Points along the V-dimension.


For this example, one surface must be defined.
U-Degree [integer](default=2): 1
V-Degree [integer](default=2): 1
Points in u direction [integer](default=3): 2
Points in v direction [integer](default=3): 2
