Intro to Python Scripting: 22 Divide Surface to Pts
In this quick tutorial we divide a surface up into points using python. This is a really quick tutorial, but is useful because it shows one way to reparameterize a surface using python.
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs srf = rs.GetObject("Pick surface to divide") udiv = rs.GetInteger("Number of Divisions in U",10) vdiv = rs.GetInteger("Number of Divisions in V",10) u = rs.SurfaceDomain(srf,0) v = rs.SurfaceDomain(srf,1) print(str(u)) print(str(v)) pts =  for i in range(0, udiv+1, 1): for j in range(0, vdiv+1, 1): pt = (i/udiv,j/vdiv,0) srfP = rs.SurfaceParameter(srf,pt) newpt = rs.EvaluateSurface(srf,srfP,srfP) pts.append(rs.AddPoint(newpt))
