Full Version: Extend Tool

Hi Michael,
I have been using the iso or projection tools to repair a bad offset surface and one of the things I needed to do was extend the surfaces for trimming.
This was achieved by extending the curves then networking to get my new surface.
I know you have mentioned before about adding a surface extend tool but in the mean time would it be possible to have a script that extends curves a given amount (both ends) rather than having to produce a boundary.
Thanks
Barry

Hi Barry, unfortunately I don't think there are enough details about curve geometry exposed to script to make it possible to do a script that did the extensions completely all on its own, and it's not a case of automating the existing command since the command only does the 2D drafting style extend-to-boundary currently.

So I don't think that's a feasible thing to script currently. Definitely the Extend command needs some attention in v4, it's pretty weak.

Hi Michael,
no problem I can work as stated. It was just a thought to speed work flow up.
Many thanks
Barry
