This is a bug and a typo!
If you reverse the direction of the curve that you created the surface from, then it will work.The problem is the surface is singular and the length of the base surface the command takes to divide is zero. I…"
Hi!I am finding that I am receiving the following error message when using the command ptgridsurfacedomain on a surface that i created by revolving a curve (see attached image)"Failed to divide. Less thank two divide points were found"however using the command ptgridsurfacedomainexact works...could you explain please?See More

"Hi Raja -
Actually we are hoping to be use the ptpanel3dcustomvariable command but enforce planarity by selecting meshes. Is there any work-around that would allow us to select meshes here so we could for instance... morph or change between…"
"Hi Raja -
I just wanted to revisit this question to see if you had any further tips or developments on how to solve the above issue?We are still hoping to use the 2dvariable commands with triangular unit patterns and maintain a planar surface so the…"
I do see your problem now and this is why it is happening:
When you generate a grid based out of a free-form surface, the rectangular unit grid is not planar.
When you call a custom paneling command this is what…"

"3d custom paneling deforms a given module morphing from the module bounding box to the unit grid (bounded by the 2 grids). this is why it can be hard to enforce special case results, such as planarity.

I am not sure I understand the first part of your question. It will help to have an example that shows the steps and desired result.

You have few options to deal with non-planar panels:
- If panels are developable (can be unrolled), then ptUnrollFaces or Rhino Unroll command should work.
- In a non-developable surfaces, you have 3 options:
