As you can see the control points on a surface cut in the middle?

To cycle through a single command all edges next? Type Loop edge?

I'm Italian sorry for my english;)

thanks

Hi Tony, when you trim a surface, the surface itself stays the same and just a new trimming boundary is created for it.

So that's normal that after a trim the surface control points stay the same, you are seeing the control points of the "underlying surface" there that is underneath all the trimming boundaries.

There is a command called ShrinkTrimmedSrf which you can set up on a keyboard shortcut though, which will shrink down an underlying surface to the size of the trim boundary, this might do what you want, it will shrink the underlying surface down so it just hugs the boundary:

Why is it that you are concerned about the control points though?

Thank you Michael as the additional commands are activated? There are scripts in particular I can show them?

The control points do I need to change the curvature of the middle surface and leave unchanged the curvature of the original surface and then make a connection between the two.

How do you activate the command to toggle the edges concatenated.

thanks

Hi Tony, you'll need to set up a keyboard shortcut with the command ShrinkTrimmedSrf on it, then use that keyboard shortcut for activating the command.

You'll probably want to use the Construct > Blend command for doing this, it's usually best if you cut away a zone of open area between the 2 pieces, something like this:









If you run into a problem with Blend, make sure you have edges selected, not just curves selected. If you have curves overlapping on the same spot as edges you have to hide or delete those curves so you can select the edges instead.


> How do you activate the command to toggle the edges concatenated.

Do you mean to join the pieces together at the end? That's the Edit > Join command.

Michael sorry but I did not understand, I insert the key into the box and the box command button what should I write?

Can you show me the steps please? how to derive the terms of the script?

For the edges I meant to click an edge and a command to select adjacent at same time

Thanks

Hi Tony,

> Michael sorry but I did not understand, I insert the key into the box and the box command button what should I write?

You should put the name:     ShrinkTrimmedSrf     on the right-hand side.

So add in a new shortcut key (push the Add button at the top), and on the left hand side put in the key you want to trigger it, such as: T

Then on the right-hand side, put in the command name or script that you want to be triggered. In this case you want a command name there, put in: ShrinkTrimmedSrf

Now when you push that key, it will call the ShrinkTrimmedSrf command on the selected objects.


> For the edges I meant to click an edge and a command to select adjacent at same time

For that one you also need to set up a shortcut key and this time it needs a script on it, the script you put is this (copy and paste this into the right-hand side):
script:/*Loop selection*/moi.geometryDatabase.selectLoop();

You need to select 2 consecutive edges first before triggering it, see here for some examples:
