Intersect/Physical/Mesh Mesh

Mesh/Mesh defines the curve where two meshes intersect. Following are two examples: the first simply demonstrates the tool; the second demonstrates how the resultant curve can be used.

Example one: shows two simple mesh planes and the resultant curve, see the green line in image 1. Images 2 & 3 show the GH definition.
Here are the steps: 1 – define meshes; 2 – Setup a “Mesh Mesh” using one mesh as input “A” and one as input “B”. A line will appear defining the curve.

Example two: shows several intersecting 3D mesh forms, the resultant curves, and steps necessary to extrude a resultant curve. Image 4 shows a curve, highlighted in green, at the intersection of the two cubes. Image 5 shows a curve, highlighted in green, at the intersection of the cube and sphere. Finally, image 6 shows an extrusion of one curve, highlighted in green. Images 7-11 show how the GH definition evolves.
Here are the steps: 1 – define meshes; 2 – setup a “Mesh Mesh” for each group of two intersecting volumes/planes, same as above except any meshes that are intersected more then once will be inputs in more then one “Mesh Mesh”; 3 – connect the “Mesh Mesh” output to the “Extrude” input to extrude the curve; 4 – define the vector, or direction and distance, of the extrusion.
