Precise non planar surface/mesh from closed curve

Ok, this is funny. I created a rectangle around the closed polyline, selected both curves and ran MESHPATCH. Then, when asked to select a hole, I picked only the outer frame, and here you got it!

This is EXACTLY what we need !

Thanks a lot.
So i guess this can be automated with a script that offsets the curve …

I ran BOUNDINGBOX and then extracted one of the faces of the box. I guess offsetting the original curve will do as well.

@pascal Did you know about this behavior with MESHPATCH? I have been using it for a long time and never thought of it!

Yes - I guess it depends on what ‘precise’ means - you posted a quite precise patch surface to begin with, so I confess I was confused as to what we are looking for.

We need either a surface or a mesh to match the edge of the surface.

Thanks for the help

That’s what I mean - a mesh will never match the curve, unless you loosen your idea of what precise means… Your patch was closer.
