I just tried to fillet 2 surfaces with pyhton.
Unfortunatelly it does not have the “extend” option, so that it would extend the fillet if the surfaces are not homogenious at their intersection.
So I tried to solve it via the commandline.
But Rhino still is asking me to chose the first surface.
Where is my mistake?
Thanks a lot!
Hi Tobias - something like this:
rs.Command ("FilletSrf SelId " + str(first_Flap) + " SelId " + str(second_Flap) )
Assuming the flaps are actually GUIDs as far as rhinoscriptsyntax is concerned.
Yes they are GUIDs. And it works out perfectly.
Last question concerning that would be:
How can I get the ID of the element that operation creates?
So far! Thanks a lot (honestly).
Hi Tobi - this should work -
If rs.LastCommandResult() == 0:
ids = [id for id in rs.LastCreatedObjects()]
Yes. Again: works out perfectly.
Thanks a lot!
so I tried to do the next step myself.
Offsetting that surface.
rs.Command("OffsetSrf SelID " + str(panel) + " ")
But nothing happens, it again is asking which one I wanna offset.
I really seem to have trouble with that commandline-logic and -syntax.
Thanks in advance.
Hello - you’ll need to look at the inputs required for the OffsetSrf command but it might be simpler to use
and not the Rhino command.
There is a Scriptng forum here:
and good resources here:
I am well aware of the offset in Phyton.
I am dealing with a brep though, that fails offsetting this way.
When I use the commandline and do it manually it’s working fine, though.
So I thought, that it might be a good idea to offset it via the commandline.
Hi Tobi - you can delve into RhinoCommon and offset the brep, e.g.
id = rs.GetObject(preselect=True)
oBreps = Rhino.Geometry.Brep.CreateOffsetBrep( brep, 2, False, True, .001)
for brepList in oBreps:
for x in brepList:
Thanks a lot for your help.
One last question.
If I wanna get the ID of the brep that got created. How would I get that?
I just thought I might also use phytons “PointClosestObject”, but that would be a lot of iterations it you’d have let’s say 1000 breps that you’d create.
Hi Tobi - each time you add a brep using
it returns the id of the added brep, so you can sat up a list ahead of time
newBreps = 
then add to the list every time you put a brep in the document
again: perfectly working out.
