Is there a way to create a surface/sheetbody from an equation of a plane?

#returns a tuple with a list for the normal coefficients (a,b,c) in index 0 and the d coefficient in index 1 plane_tuple=uf_facet.AskPlaneEquation(facet_tag, i) self.theLw.WriteLine("The normal is "+str(plane_tuple[0]))

I was able to create a four point surface using vertices but I have not seen anything where you can just use the plane equation as the input/argument. Other options like N-Sided surface, Ruled require guide curves

fourPointSurfaceBuilder1=workPart.Bodies.CreateFourPointSurfaceBuilder() #can access vertices this way [][][] coordinates1 = NXOpen.Point3d(temp_tuple[1][0][0],temp_tuple[1][0][1],temp_tuple[1][0][2]) point1 = workPart.Points.CreatePoint(coordinates1)

.......

Solved! Go to Solution.
