intersection lines between two surfaces

Hi,

I wonder how to get intersection lines between two surfaces in Civil3D API. It seems that the "MinimumDistBetweenSurfaces" command in Civil3D can do this work. But I can't find corresponding API.

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

 

I don't know any API function to do that, so I guess the way is like to do that manually: create a new volume-surface that shows Surf1-Surf2, set the style to show contours (just one contour at elevation = 0) and extract that contour as this is the intersection-line between Surf1 and Surf2.

 

Good luck, - alfred -
