xShape is a browser based freeform modeling tool that allows users to create two-dimensional subdivisions. Rectangular, circular, and ring subdivisions can be easily created and manipulate in the XApp, xShape. Below we will go over how to create and manipulate each of these different types of two-dimensional subdivisions in xShape.

Rectangle Subdivision:

two-dimensional subdivision: rectangle

Two-dimensional subdivision: rectangle

  1. Under the subdivisions tab, select rectangle
  2. Select a plane for the subdivision to be located on
  3. Select position of subdivision
  4. Adjust end conditions using change axis direction and scale by percentage
    1. Change axis direction: changes axis direction of subdivision
    2. Scale by percentage: this is a slider that scales size of subdivision where 100% is the default
  5. Enter in number of desired subdivisions in mesh along the x and y directions
  6. Manipulate height and width using arrows in work are
    1. To scale uniformly use scale by bounding box
    2. To scale nonuniformly use scale non-uniform
  7. Click green arrow when done

*Manipulate position using robot arrows

Disk Subdivision:

two-dimensional subdivision: disk

Two-dimensional subdivision: disk

  1. Under the subdivisions tab, select disk
  2. Select a plane for the subdivision to be located on
  3. Select position of subdivision
  4. Adjust end conditions using change axis direction and scale by percentage
    1. Change axis direction: changes axis direction of subdivision
    2. Scale by percentage: this is a slider that scales size of subdivision where 100% is the default
  5. Enter in number of desired subdivisions in mesh, choose disk iterations and number of sections disk is split into
  6. Manipulate height and width using arrows in work are
    1. To scale uniformly use scale by bounding box
  7. Click green arrow when done

*Manipulate position using robot arrows

Ring Subdivision:

two-dimensional subdivision: ring

Two-dimensional subdivision: ring

  1. Under the subdivisions tab, select ring
  2. Select a plane for the subdivision to be located on
  3. Select position of subdivision
  4. Adjust end conditions using change axis direction and scale by percentage
    1. Change axis direction: changes axis direction of subdivision
    2. Scale by percentage: this is a slider that scales size of subdivision where 100% is the default
  5. Enter in number of desired subdivisions in mesh, choose disk iterations and number of sections disk is split into
  6. Manipulate height and width using arrows in work are
    1. To scale uniformly use scale by bounding box
  7. Click green arrow when done
