Cut a surface with a plane, mirror the kept side of the cut across a mirror plane, and combine it with the kept side (for trimmed surfaces use Mirror Cut Polysurface).

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
SurfaceSSurface to mirror cutSurface
Mirror PlaneMPPlane that the kept side of the surface cut gets mirrored acrossPlane
ReachRParts of the surface within this distance from the mirror plane will be additionally cut awayNumber
OffsetODistance to offset the kept parts of the surface from the mirror plane (or offset from the reach if reach in not zero)Number
FlipFFlip the mirror directionBoolean
JoinJJoin the mirror cut surfacesBoolean
KeepKKeep the surface and mirror it normally if it is mirror cut into non-existenceBoolean
Connection TypeTDetermines how the mirror cut surfaces are connected 0 = Linear 1 = Tangency 2 = Curvature 3 = NoneInteger
BulgeBBulge factor for the mirror cut surface connections (-B = Negative Bulge, 0.0 = No Bulge, +B = Positive Bulge)Number

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Mirror CutMResulting mirror cut surfacesBrep
Split IndexiThe splitting index (only if Join is false) To split the mirror cut surface set at the mirror use this as the index input on Grasshopper's Split List component.Integer
Reach PlaneRPThe plane at the reach distancePlane
Offset PlaneOPThe plane at the offset distancePlane
IntersectedITrue if the surface was intersected by the mirror cut, False if the surface was not intersected by the mirror cutBoolean
