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.

Installation:

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).
