Command Line 6.2.10

3.115. surfaceFromEdges command

DescriptionCreates a new surface from the loop closed of 2, 3 or 4 curves that bounds it. It is also known as coons patch (see coons coomand).

Inline mode usage:

  • surfaceFromEdges -h: Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
  • surfaceFromEdges –s all: Selects all curves of the scene.
  • surfaceFromEdges –s <name>: Selects <name> curve.

Interactive mode usage:

  • InvocationsurfaceFromEdges
  • Parameters:
    • Two, three or four curves used for the creation of the coons patch. The set of selected curves must form a closed loop.

Example:

In this example, four boundary arcs are considered to create a new coons surface.
