Is there a Tangent Surface command?

Hi all,

I’m given a planar surface, a pipe, and a curve. The task is to create a tangent surface coming from the lower curve to the pipe, essentially like FilletEdge without the 2nd surface.

My approach so far is to create pFrames along the pipe and find the tangent sections with the lower curve, however when i try to sweep the cross sections (even with 1000+), it is not precise enough to trim the pipe.

To my understanding, there should be many ways to generate this surface, for example with isocurves that are oblique instead of vertical and still tangent to the pipe, but maybe that’s for another post.

Thank you in advance!!

This could be another way.
