I made a simplified version of a task that I have to do very frequently in Rhino. I have two closed curves that are laterally .75 inches apart they also may or may not intersect when viewed from the front. The example was simplified via drastically reducing the number of intersections that may occur.
The end result of my efforts is to create a closed curve using only the ‘inside’ lines. Therefore, the tasks that I perform to accomplish what I want is to highlight both curves and trim away all portions of the curves that are on the ‘outside’. Next I project to C Plane to make both curves co-planar and then finally I join.
I believe, for many reasons, that GH is the right tool as (opposed to Rhino scripting using Python). There are many tasks that I perform to create the curves ahead of what I have described as well as using the curves subsequently.
I have gone through a lot of GH tutorials on many occasions but they are typically geared to creating interesting 3D meshes or 3D solids. I just can’t seem to get any good footing on how to attack this.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
