In this paper, we describe a technique, with roots in topological graph theory, that we call rind modeling. It provides for the easy creation of surfaces resembling peeled and punctured rinds. We show how the method?s two main steps of 1) creation of a shell or crust like the rind of an orange, and 2) opening holes in the crust by punching or peeling can be encapsulated into a real time semi-automatic interactive algorithm. We include a number of worked examples, some by students in a first modeling course, that demonstrate the ease with which a large variety of intricate rind shapes can be created.
