In Rhino there is this _connect command. There are two curves intersecting by clicking on them. I’m looking for a similar command in grasshopper. The aim is to extend the continuity of lines and arcs to generate the intersections.
I already tried the extend and intersection component in combination. This doesn’t give reliable results because I can’t exactly define the value of the extension. If it is too small, it can happen that the curves do not intersect, if it is too large, several intersection points will occur.
This only works in combination with the extend component because the curves have to touch each other. I would like to do without the extend component because i can’t calculate the exact length of the extension.
We are getting closer but there is still a problem with the extension component.
As long as i am using the extension component there will be a problem with the right value. The point distance with a factor is not related for diffrent angles for example. Very acute angles are not really working this way.
Is there a way to implement rhino commands in grasshopper?
Yes, but they will happen in rhino, not grasshopper. Grasshopper will just trigger the command. Lunchbox has a component that let’s you type in and use rhino commands that way. Maybe someone like @dale can expose that command in Rhinocommon.
