hi

im currently working on an assignment for uni in which i need to perform 3 operations on an existing building to create a unique architecture.

i am trying to bend the object i currently have to take it from a rectangle shape to a half ring shape, just curve it

whenever i try to use the bend modifier in either max or rhino, the object doesn't bend cleanly, it gets all distorted and i cant figure out how to avoid this

any help would be great

thank you!

If your mesh doesn't bend cleanly, you probably need to refine the mesh.
Use tesselate or turbosmooth (tick separate by smoothing groups).

What is it with the CAPS TOPICS THESE DAYS ?
Are we getting blind ? deaf even.. ?
probably..

Not familiar with Rhino, but I guess it smooths over the whole surface -> deformation.

Try max - > tesselate on the largest/longest faces.
Or set up proper smoothing groups and turbosmooth modifier with the seperate by smoothing groups option.
