hello

Is there a way to generate the principle curvature curves of a surface ?

All of them? Only the ones through a specific point?

Yes at specific points especially the ones at the transition of curvature sign.

HI@dale

Thank You for your reply!

It shows an error but I think there is a component in GH SurfaceCurvature makes the same thing, right?

I wonder if I can draw 2 principle curves on the surface at a specific point .

Yes, I believe the `Principal Curvature`

component does as I mentioned.

Can you explain this further?

I drew a point and got the closest point on the surface to get its uv values and then calculated the curvature .

I want to draw 2 curves on the surface at this point follow the curvature of the surface.

I still do not know too why it calculates v as 0 for the point on surface.
