Trim a surface to its active curves on surface by splitting the surface into regions and keeping some while discarding other regions. Use locators (locatorU and locatorV) to select split regions. Use selected to specify whether to keep or discard the selected regions. Use shrinkSurface to limit the bounds of the underlying surface to just greater than the outer boundaries of the trimmed surface.
