In this video, discover how a surface object is created from closed boundary curves using the Surface.ByPatch node. Then, see how the extrude function is used to create a series of surfaces and a solid from the same boundary curves and a vector.
- [Instructor] So far in this chapter of the course,…we've taken a list of two polygons:…a square and a triangle.…We've created a vector that we then used to translate…or move those two polygons.…And then we rotated each of those polygons…around their center points.…For the moment, I'm going to hide the geometry previews…on those translate and rotate nodes.…Let's begin with one of the simplest methods…for creating a surface called a surface by patch.…
We'll find surface by patch in the geometry,…surfaces, surface section of the node library.…We can see that this node take a closed curve as an input…and that it'll generate a surface using that curve…as its boundary edges.…We can see that this input is asking…for a curved data type.…As we learned earlier in the course,…the Dynamo curve data type can include polygons…which is what we have here on our graph.…
Let's try plugging just the square polygon…into our closed curve input.…As you can see in our geometry preview,…that was a really easy way to create a surface.…
