I need to create quadrilateral meshes for an aerodynamic panel code. The meshes need to have a specified spacing of the nodes that does not correspond to Rhino’s algorithm that is based on the change in angle between successive points. I need to write out the mesh points along section lines (v isocurves) that progress from one end to the other.
I’ve attempted to create a surface with the desired distribution of points by creating polyline rails and sweeping a polyline section curve, but there were irregularies in the distribution of the isocurves.
My attempts at using Rebuild and specifying a polyline with the desired knot distribution as master curve did not result in parameterizing the curve with the desired distribution. I had to resort to manually creating sections at every station to get the distribution of points I wanted.
I’ve been through the user guide and I can’t find a way to script these actions in Rhino 6 for Mac.
Here’s a sample of the kind of surface I’m trying to fit and the distribution of sections and points along the section.

Anyone have a solution for creating these kinds of meshes?
