I would like to ask for some help with what I consider to be a topological problem:
In the example bellow I have 6 curves that are connected at the ends, forming -kind of- a tetrahedron.
I’ve been trying very hard to find a way to create 4 sublists, each containing 3 curves that form a closed loop. This is something that I do very often in my work but have never found a way to do it automatically.
(to make it more clear: from the top list of 6 curves, I want to automatically extract the 4 lists bellow that correspond to the 4 loops of the ‘network’
Do you know of a method (or a plugin) that can do it? Or at least a direction to search.
- here, I created a very simple example of 6 curves, in reality I want to use it with more complex ‘networks’
- I created the solid ‘tetrahedron’ just to show the grouping. Don’t assume that this is my goal, my goal is to create a list of curves for every loop that is formed within the network. (to be used for other operations, NOT to create solids or anything like that)
- In more complex networks, the loops might be comprised of more than three curves.
