    hello all, someone could tell me how to write a script that will automatically find the axis of the two cylinders (the tail cone) of a file as the one attached. Basically j would like that as a result of touch with the mouse was designed for each individual cylinder axis of the cylinder (or drawn on the original geometric figure). Thanks in advance for any help.

    perfect !

    thanx again hanno :)

    For Surfaces, try AddSrfPtGrid or AddSrfControlPtGrid. A simple AddMesh should give you a mesh through your points, but here you need to calculate your face vertices first.

    Thanx Hanno,

    This probably isnt the right forum for my next question, but its on the same topic... once i retrieve the points, and move them... what method can i use to create a mesh/nurbs from point... i tried mesh from points command but instead of creating a surface that is exactly based on the points, it just estimates a mesh that kind of goes through all the points rather than connect them with one another... do you know a way around this?

    there is no way to edit control points of a curve/surface in RhinoScript. You can retrieve the points with CurvePoints or Rhino.SurfacePoints, change your points and create a new object.

    I have been working on this for a while, and im sure that theres a simple to solution to what im trying to do.

    I want to manipulate the control point of a mesh (or nurbs).

    If i start with a flat mesh plane, i want to select its contol points, move them, and so consequently have the entire mesh move with it.

    im trying to upload more than one image, but for some reason i can only upload one. So ill upload the final result.. In this case i started with a flat mesh plane, and moved the control points in the Z-Axis only. I can do this with points, but not with control points.. can someone help?
