Long name (short name)TypeDefaultFlags
inputPolymesh (ipm) meshNULLoutputinputconnectable
The input surface
inputMat (im) matrixidentityoutputinputconnectablekeyable
Input world transformation matrix. Also a multi-attribute. Each input poly object must have a corresponding inputMat.
outputcurve (oc) nurbsCurveNULLoutputinputconnectable
The output curve
inputComponents (ics) componentListNULLoutputinputconnectablestorable
Input components that this node is to work on.
form (f) enum2outputinputconnectablestorable
Specifies whether this curve is to be periodic or not. Best guess will create a periodic curve if the edges form a closed loop and will create an open curve if not.
degree (dg) enum3outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
The degree of the resulting curve. 1 - linear, 2 - quadratic, 3 - cubic, 5 - quintic, 7 - heptic
