Re: [rp-ml] Conversion of 2D Image to 3D in Rhino

In addition to the heightfield surface command, there is also a mesh
heightfield command in the new bonus meshtools menu. The functionality
being very similar. The main difference is that the NURBS command will
create a smoother version(depending on settings) whereas the mesh
command is very direct & simple. Both will vary in success depending on
the image you supply. For instance a photo with allot of side light
might not give the desired results when compared with artwork that has
been prepared with the process in mind(grayscale = heightfield). Feel
free to ask any specific questions should you encounter any difficulty,
or post to the Rhino newsgroup.
