Good Afternoon, I’m having trouble converting this polysurface into a surface, I would like to take this outsole into Grasshopper. I’ve tried lofting, and network surfacing whic gives me the walls for the sole but never the bottom. I’m new to this program and it has been a little confusing. Any help would be appreciated. I’ve searched for more information but I haven’t been able to find much help.

I’ve been experimenting with loft, you might be happy with this one.

I’ll definitely check it out @Adn_Kocc I think i may have found an ingenius way to do it as well, Just had to brain storm hard. When I complete it I’ll share how I did it
Update: I used isocurves to create a wire frame but unfortunately the sub d converted to an open polysurface. WIll continue experimenting.
Good that you found a method, but the one I annexed above wasn’t that what you wanted? It was solved differently but maybe not usable what you wanted to do with it I guess.
Your model worked for me in paneling tools but when I took it to grasshopper there was an extremely small gap at the middle of the sole. I couldn’t close the gap while maintaining the single surface.
