Extrude up to next vertex?

Pierre_LinPierre_Lin Member Posts: 6 PRO
I'm using 3D XYZ CSV to generate a series of individual lines between two points. The lines are all parallel.

I need to create solid column geometry along each of these lines with the minimum number of features, everything features to be a group operation.

Does anyone know of a feature script that allows extrude up to next vertex?

If so, I could use that featurescript in tandem with the featurescript Point Pattern applying per instance to achieve the geometry I need.

Also open to other suggested workflows

    You could try just using the Frame feature and select all the curves?

    I'm no FS expert, but I made a custom feature a while back that should probably work.  It just gets all edges in a part studio (3D XYX CSV splines would count) and uses evEdgeTangentLines to make points and create a sweep.  The direction of the sweep profile (xy, xz, yz plane) is hard coded.
