algorithmic modeling for Rhino

This is a first stab at a component that draws principal curvature lines on surfaces. While integrating the curvature vectors turned out to be not too difficult, finding a way to select the "right" set of seed points for a well-spaced grid is much more difficult. Maybe some combination of this component and Daniel Piker's method?

I just downloaded the SPM components GHA from Food4Rhino and there is no apparent PrincipleCurvature Component there a way to build such functionality from the existing SPM components...could you post a definition?

Dear Daniel, this definition is very interesting put I wonder what is the "PCL" component?

that would be great. I was reading Pottmann's et al book 'Architectural Geometry' and there is a lot of interesting stuff to do based on  Principal Curvature lines, such as structurally optimal surface divisions and what not. Eager to try your tool, rather sooner than later, not to rush you or anything ;)

I'm working on releasing the Principal Curvature component + the Dragonfly Component very soon (hopefully by the end of the week).

I am interested in trying your tool, but where can I find your definition?
