EM_Weaved Nests

This script is drawing lines on a surface depending on u and v parameters to pipe a circle along them so that it creates structure that looks like a nest:

Option Explicit
‘If it is working then scripted by Eduardo Mayoral
‘If Not scripted by anyone else

Call Nest()

Sub Nest()
 ‘  Selecting and Evaluating Surface
 Dim strsurface : strsurface = Rhino.GetObject(“Select Surface to Weave”, 8)
 Dim ptBase : ptBase = Rhino.GetPoint(“Select starting Point “)
 Dim ptEnd : ptEnd = Rhino.GetPoint(“Select ending Point”)
 Dim udom, vdom, uparam, vparam, arrpt, i, j, y, udiv, vdiv

 udiv = 200
 vdiv = 200
 ReDim colec2d(udiv, vdiv)
 udom = Rhino.SurfaceDomain(strsurface,0)
 vdom = Rhino.SurfaceDomain(strsurface,1)
 For i = 0 To udiv
  For j = 0 To vdiv
   uparam = udom(0) + rnd * (udom(1) – udom(0))
   vparam = vdom(0) + rnd * (vdom(1) – vdom(0))
   arrpt = Rhino.EvaluateSurface(strsurface, array(uparam, vparam))
   colec2d(i,j) = arrpt

 ‘  Defining Planes and Calling Functions
 Dim colec, colec2

 For j = 0 To vdiv – 1
  colec = array (colec2d(0,j), colec2d(udiv,j))
  Dim arrplane : arrplane = Rhino.PlaneFromFrame (colec2d(0,j), array(1,0,0), array(0,1,0))
  Dim curve: curve = micrv(strsurface, colec)
  Call crazypipes(curve, ptBase, ptEnd)
 ‘Call rhino.Deleteobject (strsurface)

End Sub

‘  Function to Interpolate Curves on Surface

Function micrv(strsurface, colec)
 Dim curve: curve = Rhino.AddInterpCrvOnSrf (strsurface, colec)
 micrv = curve
End Function

‘  Function for piping

Function crazypipes(crv, bs, en)

 Dim dom, param, arrpt, i
 arrpt = Rhino.DivideCurve(crv, 10, False)
 ReDim colecCrv(Ubound(arrpt))
 For i = 0 To Ubound(arrpt)
  Dim dblParameter: dblParameter = Rhino.CurveClosestPoint (crv, arrpt(i))  
  Dim plane: plane = Rhino.CurvePerpFrame (crv, dblParameter)
  Dim angle: angle = rhino.Angle2(array(bs, en), array(bs, arrpt(i)))
  Rhino.print (angle(0))
  If angle(0) < 60 Then
   colecCrv(i) = Rhino.AddCircle (plane, 0.0001*angle(0))

   colecCrv(i) = Rhino.AddCircle(plane, 0.0003*angle(0))
  End If
 Call Rhino.AddLoftSrf(colecCrv)
End Function
