Shrink and Divide patch surface?


(Coker-0ne) #1

Hello !

I am trying to create a framework of a parametric surface which has been created with patch command.
However when i divide the surface it devides all the untrimmed surface. How can i divide only the trimmed surface?

Ok thank you very much. Which command i have to use in order to trim a surface with another surface for example in grasshopper. I mean is there an equivalent command with rhino trim in grasshopper/


This could be one way…

Thank you. However just out of curiosity is there any way to trim a surface with an extrusion in grasshopper. Cause I haven`t found a way yet.
