Add Leader

Demonstrates how to add a leaders to your Rhino model from an array of points.

partial class Examples
{
  public static Result Leader(RhinoDoc doc)
  {
    var points = new Point3d[]
    {
      new Point3d(1, 1, 0),
      new Point3d(5, 1, 0),
      new Point3d(5, 5, 0),
      new Point3d(9, 5, 0)
    };

    foreach (var point3d in points)
    {

        if (points2d.Count < 1 || point2d.DistanceTo(points2d.Last<Point2d>()) > RhinoMath.SqrtEpsilon)
