Error with Paneling tools

Could someone explain what is the meaning of this error?
“1. Solution exception:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.”


Often when you script it is because you have no input in your case the surface

Thanks Baris,

How is that possible that I don’t get the surface. It is visible on the view port?

Should I internalize or something?

I thought it’s because of the other parameters. I still don’t know how to use paneling tools.

sometimes, lofting or sweeping produces a brep instead of a surface due to corrupt geometry or other irregularities. could this be the problem?

not in my case it is a 5 degree nurbs surface

I’ll upload gh file, let me just internalize

I noticed this:

Issue with panel (5.1 KB)

hi ivelin,
I don’t know if you realize it but what you were trying to do was divide a 24m ship hull into panels of 10mm.
even if it worked, your computer would explode! :slight_smile:
I believe that you got confused with the units when in reality you wanted to divide it every 1 meter.

Are you sure though that you want to work with fixed distances and not just use divide surface? (8.3 KB)

:smiley: that was kinda the issue, I have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve never used Paneling tools so I just created this hull to get some surface and started dragging components :smiley:

Thanks for helping me understand the issue.

I guess we’ve reached the limits of Paneling tools with my surface.
