Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution

He profiles a subject matter of severe significance to lawmakers, media pundits, and usual Americans—whether or now not they inhale.

To help construct these curves, we have, based on the photos from various sources, prepared some sketches. Some of these sketches are shown in Figure P2–2. With these and other sketches, a wireframe of curves is produced and a set of contiguous surfaces can then be made, as shown in Figure P2–3.

FIGURE P2–3 Surfaces representing the bubble car’s main body panels Upon completion of the main body, we will proceed to make the skirt, by producing five intersecting surfaces, trimming away the unwanted portions, and rounding off the edges.

Before making the surfaces, we first study and analyze the 3D object to determine what types of surfaces are needed. We consider various types of primitive surfaces, basic free-form surfaces, and derived surfaces. Among these surfaces, free-form surfaces are those most commonly used. All free-form surfaces have one thing in common: They all need to be constructed from smooth curves and/or point objects. It is natural to start thinking about the surfaces but not the points and curves while we are designing and making a surface model.
