BrepCreateThickPipe Method (Curve, IEnumerableDouble, IEnumerableDouble, IEnumerableDouble, Boolean, PipeCapMode, Boolean, Double, Double)

Creates a double-walled pipe.

Namespace:  Rhino.Geometry
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
Syntax
public static Brep[] CreateThickPipe(
	Curve rail,
	IEnumerable<double> railRadiiParameters,
	IEnumerable<double> radii0,
	IEnumerable<double> radii1,
	bool localBlending,
	PipeCapMode cap,
	bool fitRail,
	double absoluteTolerance,
	double angleToleranceRadians
)

Parameters

rail
Type: Rhino.GeometryCurve
The rail, or path, curve.
railRadiiParameters
Type: System.Collections.GenericIEnumerableDouble
One or more normalized curve parameters where changes in radius occur. Important: curve parameters must be normalized - ranging between 0.0 and 1.0. Use Interval.NormalizedParameterAt to calculate these.
radii0
Type: System.Collections.GenericIEnumerableDouble
One or more radii for the first wall - one at each normalized curve parameter in railRadiiParameters.
radii1
Type: System.Collections.GenericIEnumerableDouble
One or more radii for the second wall - one at each normalized curve parameter in railRadiiParameters.
localBlending
Type: SystemBoolean
The shape blending. If True, Local (pipe radius stays constant at the ends and changes more rapidly in the middle) is applied. If False, Global (radius is linearly blended from one end to the other, creating pipes that taper from one radius to the other) is applied.
cap
Type: Rhino.GeometryPipeCapMode
The end cap mode.
fitRail
Type: SystemBoolean
If the curve is a polycurve of lines and arcs, the curve is fit and a single surface is created; otherwise the result is a Brep with joined surfaces created from the polycurve segments.
absoluteTolerance
Type: SystemDouble
The sweeping and fitting tolerance. When in doubt, use the document's absolute tolerance.
angleToleranceRadians
Type: SystemDouble
The angle tolerance. When in doubt, use the document's angle tolerance in radians.

Return Value

Type: Brep
Array of Breps success.
