Twisted Box Through Surfaces

Create a layered array of connected twisted boxes through a set of surfaces from domain dividing parameters.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
SurfacesSSet of surfaces to create twisted box array throughSurface
Parameters UuDivision parameters along surface {u} domains ({u}0.0 = Surface starts, {u}1.0 = Surface ends) For best results {u} parameters should be between 0 and 1, in numerical order, and non duplicateNumber
Parameters VvDivision parameters along surface {v} domains ({v}0.0 = Surface starts, {v}1.0 = Surface ends) For best results {v} parameters should be between 0 and 1, in numerical order, and non duplicateNumber
Parameters WwDivision parameters through surfaces {w} domain ({w}0.0 = Surface at S start, {w}1.0 = Surface at S end), unless Normalized is False For best results {w} parameters should be between 0 and 1, in numerical order, and non duplicateNumber
NormalizedNIf False, the rules for {w} parameters are ({w}0.0 = Surface at index 0, {w}Index number of last surface = Surface at last index) For best results {w} parameters should be between 0 and the index of the last surface, in numerical order, and non duplicateBoolean
EqualizedEIf True, parameters {w} distribution is evaluated along the interpolation path without considering the locations of the input surface setBoolean
WeightedWIf True, parameters {w} distribution is weighted by the input surface set and the interpolation path curvatureBoolean
LoopbackLIf True, allow the parameters {w} interpolation path to continue from the end back to the start as a closed loop (if Normalized is False, increase the division parameters {w} range maximum by 1)Boolean
DegreeDCurvature degree of the {w} interpolation path, degree should be a positive odd numberInteger
Interpolation TypeIDetermines how the {w} interpolation path is interpolated 0 = Linear 1 = Chord 2 = Square Root 3 = UniformInteger
RefitROptional Refit match method. (No Integer or 0 = Off, Integer greater than 0 = On and surface degree of refit) If an integer greater than zero, Refit match method is used if possible. When input surfaces are refit their control points are redistributed, added to, and removed from based on the surfaces curvature and the input integer degree, while trying to maintain their shapes. Refit results in tighter shaped twisted boxes, with curvature based control point distribution.Integer
Point SamplePOptional Point Sample match method. (No Integer or 0 = Off, Integer greater than 0 = On and amount of sample points) If an integer greater than zero, Point Sample match method is used. When input surfaces are sampled their control points are recreated by equally dividing the surface by the input integer point count. Point Sample results in looser shaped twisted boxes, with uniform control point distribution.Integer
