Mesh to surface/ Polysurface to single surface

It’s a sad truth that rhino does not like grasshopper’s ProjectPoints or MeshRay for these matters - your logic made sense…

The pufferfish route suggested by BVR is valid, though you won’t get to an untrimmed surface, plus an ultra-faceted polysurface is no fun.

If you skip plug-ins (except Kangaroo2 within Rhino) then you can get it to work ‘fast’ via MeshMap:

  • NOTE: You can achieve this without ‘meshmap’, for which you’d need to rely on the ClosestPoint command, which will freeze your machine most likely with these many points…
