How can I convert that Brep into a Surface?

Hi everyone,

I wanna convert that Brep made with the component Edge Surface.

Also I don’t know exactly why that gave me a Brep and with all these subdivisions, If you know, please explain me.

So for solve my problem, How can I transform into a only one surface (or maybe maximum 4) ?

There are a few things here.

First of all you can copy paste a screenshot into a post. The screenshot I pasted below is done with ctrl+Q in Grasshopper.

Second thing. Your definition relies on plugins which not everyone uses. I extracted the relevant part of your definition and internalized the bottom curve.

As you can see, there’s no need to use list item 4 times per curve to build your catenary curves.

Then the reason why your surfaces have so many divisions is because the result of the catenary is a polyline. You can rebuild the polyline into a degree 3 curve with 10 control points for example. Then instead of creating 4 edge surfaces you can create one sweep2. (28.8 KB)

Thank you so much.

I will study your solution because I don’t usually use these components. But I think you solved my question ^-^

No problem. Ask when something is unclear.

If you’re unfamiliar with lists and tree structures, study the Grasshopper primer:

I really appreciate that.

Yeah, absolutelly you solved my question. I think I understand but definitelly I will study this link.

Thank you so much again!
