One of the great features in Rhino 5 is the ability to apply shut lines. Any adjacent surfaces that have a break between them (such as panels on a car or aircraft) are referred to as shut lines. In this video we’ll go over some quick tips for showing multiple iterations of panel break-ups in a non-destructive manner. By working this way, a designer is able to visualize multiple ways of breaking up a form without having to re-model the mesh for each design iteration. Sweet!
