Refers to both a method of surface modeling in which a row of control points terminate in a T shape and a company founded to develop the concept as plug-ins for SOLIDWORKS and Rhino design software. T-Splines Inc. was acquired by Autodesk in 2004. Autodesk discontinued the plug-in for SOLIDWORKS in 2014 and discontinued the plug-in for Rhino in 2017.
