what about the tool from the curves-wb to join the selected Edges into Bspline curves?
Are this kind of bspline curves usable with your gordon surface tool?
it is really not a big deal
and I have already the methods to convert most of the surfaces to bspline surfaces,
and now its the time to do it with curves too.
I allways use at a last step to convet the bsplines to multiplicity 3 knots, that means to bezier objects which are easier to edit
and all my methods in the editor work on this base.
So I see no compatibility problem in future. Any curve and surface should have a way to become a bspline if it is needed to perfom free forming actions.
The idea of the Gordon surfaces I had in background for the way to reconstruct shoes from scan: slice the point cloud, convert the slices to beziers with same structure, create a gordon surface from the slice grid. The big benefit of the gorden is the S3 term which gives better results than the loft and the sweeps with one or 2 sweep pathes.
