Extract line when it touches surface

Hi all,

I want to extract those lines that touched the building surface in order to reduce the number of line. Any idea about that?

Thank you in advance.

pls tag your topic with grasshopper. rhino itself has SelBox. so just bake out those lines/objects if you dont need it dynamically.

here is also a python script no idea if it works, but again not in grasshopper.

Hi @encephalon,

Thanks for the fast reply. It seems that we have to select the line manually via SelBox. It is possible for handling small scale of geometry but is there any idea doing it in grasshopper?

PS. The python script is not available now so that I had not tested it.

Best,
