Namespace:  Rhino.Geometry
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
public Curve OffsetNormalToSurface(
	Surface surface,
	double height


Type: Rhino.GeometrySurface
Surface from which normals are calculated.
Type: SystemDouble
offset distance (distance from surface to result curve)

Return Value

Type: Curve
Offset curve at distance height from the surface. The offset curve is interpolated through a small number of points so if the surface is irregular or complicated, the result will not be a very accurate offset.
