Abstract: 

In view of the difficulty in generating bas-reliefs on 3D models with Rhinoceros, the most popular industrial design software in China, this paper puts forward a method to generate bas-relief on the surface of 3D models based on 2D images, and embeds the method into a Rhinoceros plug-in with the aid of RhinoScript. Through application verification, it is proved that the plug-in enables the automatic generation of base-relief from 2D images on Rhinoceros. The research findings provide an effective tool for industrial designers.
