Divide surface in divisions other than u, v


Im trying to divide this elipsoid surface in x,y direction points as shown in (1).
Next I want to get the normals for these points. Since, the usual u,v division gives results as shown in (2); Im having trouble projecting/placing these x,y points on the elipsoid brep.
Any ideas how can I divide this brep in x,y directional points in the first place? Or, if not then projecting/placing/putting these points onto the surface so that I can get the normals for them…?

Im new to this, so apologies if this is a novice question…

Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:Divide surface x y grid.gh (24.1 KB)
