I need to shrink some surfaces right to the edges like with the Rhino ShrinkTrimmedSrfToEdge command.
Actually, I don’t understand why ShrinkTrimmedSrf does not shrink to the edges ; what’s the point in commands that almost do what they are supposed to ?
Anyways, I need to find the lengths (at axis) of bent pipes which have fish mouths (end cuts) ; so I really need the shrinking to be exact.
In general what’s the way to use a Rhino command on referenced geometry when there is no equivalent GH or GH plugin component ?
Do I have to find the Rhinocommons command and make a python or VB component ? (Ugh…)
I updated my initial post.
I know of the “Rhino Command” component, but it’s just sending a command to the Rhino command line ; it will only work if I bake my surfaces, select them, and then reference the resulting surfaces in GH. PHEW…
You can do it automatically if you chain a bunch of commands kind of like a macro. Like bake>select>shrink>reference. If you look at Rhinos command line when you reference geo into gh there is actually a command running, same for bake.
