Project Points to Breps

Demonstrates how to project points to Brep objects.

partial class Examples
{
  public static Result ProjectPointsToBreps(RhinoDoc doc)
  {
    var gs = new GetObject();
    gs.SetCommandPrompt("select surface");
    gs.GeometryFilter = ObjectType.Surface | ObjectType.PolysrfFilter;
    gs.DisablePreSelect();
    gs.SubObjectSelect = false;
    gs.Get();
    if (gs.CommandResult() != Result.Success)
      return gs.CommandResult();
    var brep = gs.Object(0).Brep();
    if (brep == null)
      return Result.Failure;

    var points = Intersection.ProjectPointsToBreps(
                 new List<Brep> {brep}, // brep on which to project
                 new List<Point3d> {new Point3d(0, 0, 0), new Point3d(3,0,3), new Point3d(-2,0,-2)}, // some random points to project
                 new Vector3d(0, 1, 0), // project on Y axis
                 doc.ModelAbsoluteTolerance);

    if (points != null && points.Length > 0)
    {
      foreach (var point in points)
      {
        doc.Objects.AddPoint(point);
      }
    }
    doc.Views.Redraw();
    return Result.Success;
