NURBSULoftSurface : NURBSSurface

This class defines a dependent U Loft surface. A U Loft surface interpolates a surface across multiple curve sub-objects. The curves become U-axis contours of the surface.

Constructors

NURBSUloftSurface [<property>:<val>]...

Any of the object's properties may be set via optional keyword arguments on the constructor.

getObject <nurbsset> <index>

Properties

<nurbsuloftsurface>.numCurves : integer

The number of curves used by the U Loft.

Methods

getCurve <nurbsuloftsurface> <index>

Gets the NURBSSet index of the indexed U Loft curve; curve indexes are 1-based.

setCurve <nurbsuloftsurface> <index> <curve>

Sets the indexed U Loft curve to the curve specified by the NURBSSet index.

getCurveID <nurbsuloftsurface> <index>

Gets the NURBSId of the indexed U Loft curve in the loft; curve indexes are 1-based.

setCurveByID <nurbsuloftsurface> <index> <curveID>

Sets the indexed U Loft curve to the curve specified by the NURBSId.

appendCurve <nurbsuloftsurface> <curve> [flip:<boolean>] [startPoint:<float>] [tension:<float>] [useTangent:<boolean>] [flipTangent:<boolean>]

Adds a curve to the end of the list of U Loft curves by specifying the NURBSSet index. If flip:true is specified, the interpretation of the start and end of the curve to be reversed. startPoint: specifies the start point on the curve. This value is only applicable if the curve is closed. tension: specifies the tension of the curve. If useTangent:true is specified and the curve is a curve on surface, causes the U Loft to use the tangency of the surface. This can help blend a loft smoothly onto a surface. If flipTangent:true is specified, the tangent is flipped for the curve.

appendCurveByID <nurbsuloftsurface> <curveID> [flip:<boolean>] [startPoint:<float>] [tension:<float>] [useTangent:<boolean>] [flipTangent:<boolean>]

Adds a curve to the end of the list of U Loft curves by specifying the NURBSId.

getFlip <nurbsuloftsurface> <index>

setFlip <nurbsuloftsurface> <index> <boolean>

Get or set the flip state of the indexed U Loft curve; true causes the interpretation of the start and end of the curve to be reversed, used to control twisting in the loft.
