Extract surface data using python script

Hi there,

I am currently working on a project where I would like to optimise the parameters of a surface model. The surface model is generated from Rhino. So I am trying to extract some parameter values from the surface (python script) so that I can put into an optimisation tool, but I could only extract surface control points. But what I need is ‘thickness of surface’ to optimise parameters, not points. So my questions are,

What kind of parameters I can extract from a surface model?

Would it be possible to extract thickness of surface?

Hmm, simple surfaces do not have “thickness” in Rhino… Are you looking for some sort of analysis of a section through a volume model in a given direction to determine a ‘thickness’?
