as shown in the image, may I ask how to create this kind of loft shape (in blue color) based on two vertical surfaces of two boxes?

thanks!

Dear Houdinese,

Can you kindly suggest some methods to generate the above loft form based on two vertical polygons?

Thanks!

hi ,

this is my suggestion ..

just put both prim's IDs separately on “subnet1” parameters .

i simply used the Transform SOP to avoid the probs with the points' disorder .

works fine on parallel prims . if you need to rotate them separately , dive inside the “subnet1” and fill the rotation inputs with some maths ..



.cheers

Haven't checked Zarti's file, maybe it's the same thing.

If the 2 polygons (box faces) actually exist, then a Skin SOP should do the surface. Might need to fiddle with point order/sort/shift vertices.

If the 2 faces don't actually exist (they're holes) then Divide SOP>Remove shared edges, followed by the same Skin SOP. The resulting geo then merged with the original boxes and fused.
