Ruled Surface

Description

The Ruled Surface entity is surface based on a BSpline Surface which is generated by linearly interpolating between a pair of any combination of BSpline curves, Polylines, Cubic Splines or Interpolating Cubic BSplines. The surface entity is edited by modifying its definition curves although the surface itself can be extracted as a BSpline Surface or as a Mesh if either of the two curves are not BSpline curves.

Creation

Right-Click -> Multiple Selection -> Ruled

Create a Ruled Surface by selecting two of any of BSpline curves, Polylines, Cubic Splines or Interpolating Cubic BSplines.
