Coons Mesh vs. Splinepatch 3.0

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if there are significant differences between the Coons Mesh and SplinePatch 3.0 Plugins? 
It seems like Coons Mesh is a free version of the SplinePatch, albeit less stable.  I can't find any comparison tutes or forum threads on Google, at least easily. 
Is anybody familiar with these tools and can elaborate?   

Cheers,

SplinePatch (3 in particular) has a great deal more options and possibilities than Coons Mesh, the most important of which is its ability to seamlessly and procedurally combine multiple patches into one contiguous mesh...

 

Just checking you have seen this, which expounds on, among other things, the spline cage object, with which Coons Mesh just cannot compete...

Hi @Cerbera do you use spline patch in your modelling workflow?

 

I’ve been lost learning Houdini where coons mesh is very common.

Not so far, but I haven't had much need to model cars or things that would especially benefit from the patch approach, and I much prefer working with Sub-D over patches.

  • Thanks Cerbera, that answers my question.  I did see some SplinePatch tutorials but it didn't seem like they'd compare it to features in Coons Mesh. 
    Looks like its worth the purchase for what I want to do.
