Developable surface from two curves

unhandled

#1

How can I make a developable surface that approximates the surface defined by these two curves?
Are there any grasshopper tools for it?
I have the eval version of eloft. Not sure how to generate a fully developable surface with that.

If you make a sweep2 with a line as cross section it will be developable. At little scale the sweep is a succession of quads and a quad could be triangulated with points which are just on the 2 curves. So it will be developable. It is a strip.
Does it help ?

You can use etLoftDevelopable in EvoluteTools D.LOFT to loft a developable surface between the curves.
