This class defines a dependent Lathe surface. A Lathe surface is generated from a curve sub-object. It is similar to a surface created with the Lathe modifier. The advantage is that a lathe sub-object is part of the NURBS model, so you can use it to construct other curve and surface sub-objects.
Any of the object's properties may be set via optional keyword arguments on the constructor.
getObject <nurbsset> <index>
<nurbslathesurface>.parent : integer
The parent curve by NURBSet index.
<nurbslathesurface>.parentID : integer
The parent curve by NURBSId.
<nurbslathesurface>.axisTM : matrix3
The axis system for the surface of revolution.
<nurbslathesurface>.sweep : float
The angle of the revolution in degrees.
<nurbsextrudesurface>.curveStartPoint : float
The start point on the parent curve. This value is only applicable if the curve is closed.
