    It works! Thank you very much Hanno!

    I was that obsessed with the "point" that I forgot about the answer!!

    thank you very very much!!!

    When writing


    you are mixing up geometrical 3d-points and rhino point object IDs. Try using int(0) instead of intpt.

    Hi Hanno!

    Thx for trying to help me...I've already tryied that...

    when using
    intpt = Rhino.addpoint(int(0))

    instead of
    intpt = Rhino.addpoint(int)

    stills give me the error...that's why I'm about to eat my computer...

    you have to be careful about the return value of rhino methods. Often when there can be more than one results, methods return an array. So in your case, Rhino.ProjectPointToSurface returns an Array of points.
    So if you want to access the first point in your array (which might also be the only one), you can simply use int(0) to access it.
    However, for stability reasons I always recommend checking return values first, like If not isarray(int) Then print something and exit.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi guys!
    I'm kinda noob in scripting and after some days squeezing my brain to solve the problem...I need some help...

    In that script, I give some surfaces (tile) and need to find the centroid the projection of it onto a topographic surface and move the previous surface at that high.
    I even get the point projectet in the surface and just need to do the "move" command...but always crashes when using the projected point...

    Here's the code...and let's hope somebody sees the light!!
    Btw, the error output is "type mismatch in parameter. one-dimensional array"

    If IsArray(center) Then
    Rhino.AddPoint center(0)
    End If

    Dim path
    Dim pt0, pt1, pt2
    pt0 = array (center(0)(0),center(0)(1), center(0)(2))
    pt1 = array (center(0)(0),center(0)(1), center(0)(2)+25)
    pt2 = array (center(0)(0),center(0)(1), center(0)(2)-25)
    path = rhino.addline (pt1,pt2)

    Call rhino.Command("_sellast")
    Call rhino.Command("_delete")

    Dim int, intpt()

    int = Rhino.ProjectPointToSurface(pt0, srfexterior, Array(0,0,1))
    intpt = Rhino.addpoint(int) <----HERE'S WHERE I GET THE ERROR!!!

    Call rhino.MoveObject(polygon,pt0,intpt)
    End Sub
