Moving curve point flips resulting surface history

curve point change flips surface history.3dm (61.3 KB)

Oh great, scaling the bigger curve using a relocated gizmo essentially flips the result seemingly randomly… at least I can sort of sketch the surfaces without having to recreate everything between each iteration now… :upside_down_face:

Hi Robert -

Should I be doing something differently?

That flips it for me. Weird, so here’s my sysinfo:

Your gif at the top looks to me like the whole surface moves, not the control point…

Hmm, OK, I can repeat it here. Odd. What command did you use to create the surface from those two curves? I tried with Sweep1 but it does not react the same way as the original surfaces in the file - it reacts like @wim’s test.

Ah, once again, if only there was a query edit in Rhino…

It is a Sweep 1 but it matters at which end and in which order you pick the curves.

You have to click the left side of the top curve first (that’s why I have a different colored backface in my display mode).
