Question

Is it possible to design a spherically curved glass pane in RF‑GLASS?

Answer

Yes, it is possible.

When modeling a spherically curved glass pane, make sure that the surface consists of four boundary lines only.

In RF‑GLASS, it is necessary to deactivate the "Activate layered mesh for solids" option for double-curved or spherical glass panes.
