Welcome to the Rhino 7 version of this page! Looking for the newer Rhino 8 WIP version?

Planar Surface

Demonstrates how to create a planar surface from a rectangle.

partial class Examples
  public static Result PlanarSurface(RhinoDoc doc)
    Point3d[] corners;
    var rc = Rhino.Input.RhinoGet.GetRectangle(out corners);
    if (rc != Result.Success)
      return rc;

    var plane = new Plane(corners[0], corners[1], corners[2]);

    var plane_surface = new PlaneSurface(plane,
      new Interval(0, corners[0].DistanceTo(corners[1])),
      new Interval(0, corners[1].DistanceTo(corners[2])));

    return Result.Success;
Partial Friend Class Examples
  Public Shared Function PlanarSurface(ByVal doc As RhinoDoc) As Result
	Dim corners() As Point3d = Nothing
	Dim rc = Rhino.Input.RhinoGet.GetRectangle(corners)
	If rc IsNot Result.Success Then
	  Return rc
	End If

	Dim plane = New Plane(corners(0), corners(1), corners(2))

	Dim plane_surface = New PlaneSurface(plane, New Interval(0, corners(0).DistanceTo(corners(1))), New Interval(0, corners(1).DistanceTo(corners(2))))

	Return Result.Success
  End Function
