Annotate Curve Endpoints

Demonstrates how to add a NURBS curve to Rhino using Python.


# Annotate the endpoints of curve objects
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs

def AnnotateCurveEndPoints():
    """Annotates the endpoints of curve objects. If the curve is closed
    then only the starting point is annotated.
    # get the curve object
    objectId = rs.GetObject("Select curve", rs.filter.curve)
    if objectId is None: return

    # Add the first annotation
    point = rs.CurveStartPoint(objectId)
    rs.AddTextDot(point, point)

    # Add the second annotation
    if not rs.IsCurveClosed(objectId):
        point = rs.CurveEndPoint(objectId)
        rs.AddTextDot(point, point)

# Check to see if this file is being executed as the "main" python
# script instead of being used as a module by some other python script
# This allows us to use the module which ever way we want.
