Loft Surfaces

Demonstrates how to create a lofted surface from a set of user-specified curves.

partial class Examples
{
  public static Result Loft(RhinoDoc doc)
  {
    // select curves to loft
    var gs = new GetObject();
    gs.SetCommandPrompt("select curves to loft");
    gs.GeometryFilter = ObjectType.Curve;
    gs.DisablePreSelect();
    gs.SubObjectSelect = false;
    gs.GetMultiple(2, 0);
    if (gs.CommandResult() != Result.Success)
      return gs.CommandResult();

    var curves = gs.Objects().Select(obj => obj.Curve()).ToList();

    var breps = Brep.CreateFromLoft(curves, Point3d.Unset, Point3d.Unset, LoftType.Tight, false);
    foreach (var brep in breps)
      doc.Objects.AddBrep(brep);

    doc.Views.Redraw();
    return Result.Success;
  }
