ConvexMeshBuilder is a plugin that allows the creation of convex hull meshes in Rhino.
A convex mesh is a mesh that represents the smallest convex region that includes all the points. It is frequently used in rigid body simulations.
This plugin adds the following Rhino commands:
- ConvexFromPoints – Compute a convex mesh from a set of points.
- ConvexFromMesh – Compute a convex mesh from an existing mesh using its vertices.
- DecomposeToConvex – Try to decompose an input mesh to multiple convex mesh that approximate the shape.
Double click on the ConvexMeshBuilder.rhi.
The convex hull generation is using the MIConvexHull library which released under the MIT license.
The mesh decomposition into multiple convex meshes is using the v-hacd library which is released under the BSD license.
ConvexMeshBuilder was developped by Ayoub Lharchi for the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA).
