I'm looking for an automated grasshopper alternative for the Rhino Setpt command

I’ve been using the setpoint command to flatten the base of a mesh and remove overhangs.

The steps involved are as follows:

-Turn points on
-Manually box select the points to be flattened
-Choose the axis to move the points
-Set the distance to move set the points to.


I’m looking to automate this workflow but my knowledge of point manipulation in grasshopper is somewhat lacking.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


We could probably help you much more efficiently if you’d provide us with a sample geometry.
From what I’m seeing im wondering why you’re not trimmin&cappin?

e: as for SetPt - you could deconstruct point and reconstruct with a new X, Y or Z value.

of course there’s absolutely no reason in keeping them so you might as well cull em.

My apologies, I didn’t attach the file. Just leaving the office now, I’ll check out your approach in the morning. Thanks for the response

Don’t use them often so just meshin around. Working just fine though.

Q: Is there a better way to cap that mesh? Mesh+'s cap isn’t working (since thats fanning out from a centerpoint).
