Detaches a surface at parameter value(s) in a specified direction (attribute "direction"). The parameter value(s) are given by the the multiattribute "parameter". The output attribute is a multiattribute containing the resulting surface pieces. The "keep" multiattribute specifies which surface pieces to keep or discard. The "keep" attribute is one element larger than the "parameter" attribute. eg. if a surface is detached at 3 parameter values, then the result is 4 surface pieces to keep or discard.

A single detachSurface node can only detach in one direction.
