    Hi James,

    in Rhinoscript there is the very convenient function PointArrayClosestPoint. You could use it to find the closest point and directly draw the shortest line.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi all,
    I would like to find a shortest line from lines created from arrPoint1 to arrPoints as per below script. if anyone has ever done this please help as I really no idea how to figure out?
    Thank very much,

    'Script version 13 ?????? 2555 20:23:41

    Call Main()
    Sub Main()
            Dim strObject, arrPoints, arrPoint, arrPoint1, intSeg, dblDistance, strLine, dblLineL
            strObject = Rhino.GetObject("Select one curve")
            If IsNull(strObject) Then Exit Sub
            intSeg = Rhino.GetReal("Input segment to be divided = ",5, 1, 25)
            If Rhino.IsCurve(strObject) Then
                    arrPoints = Rhino.DivideCurve(strObject, intSeg)
                    If IsArray(arrPoints) Then
                            arrPoint1 = Rhino.GetPoint("Select one point")
                            If IsArray(arrpoint1) Then
                                    For Each arrPoint In arrPoints
                                            Rhino.AddPoint arrPoint
                                            dblDistance = Rhino.Distance(arrPoint1, arrPoint)

                                            If Not IsNull(dblDistance) Then

                                                    Rhino.Print "Distance: " & CStr(dblDistance)
                                                    StrLine = rhino.AddLine (arrPoint1, arrPoint)
                                                    dblLineL = rhino.CurveLength(strLine)

                                            End If

                                    'dblMindis = rhino.Min(dblDistance)
                                    'rhino.Print "Min distance: " & CStr(dblMinDis)
                            End If
                    End If
            End If
