… don t want to call it bug, because this is (maybe) more a geometric problem.
… and we still don t have the category modelling / geometric understanding
pulling some curves to a surface, i got really strange results - after further investigation i could somehow reconstruct this excerpt.
(came across it, modelling a quite geometrical chair)
It is obvious, that the base/center-point of a cone does not have a unique solution being pulled to a con. see green example in the middle, all points on the green circle have same (shortest) distance to the center.
but also pulling a curve to other geometry - gives results that are not geometrically correct.
see shelter-like surface in the background.

for me it seams, like the pull command does not handle those special cases in a meaningfull way.
it should be possible that a curve that get s pull to a surfaces has more than one result, with a gap (those two small curves in the background.)
and for some special cases pulling a point to a surface - the correct answer is a curve.
(there is other examples, where a geometric operation has different types as result: a intersection between two curves can have an overlap or a point…)
just came across this, and wanted to share it.
i would guess @theoutside and hopefully other love this geometric excursion ;-D
kind regards -tom
