Need help fixing naked edges


I am quite new to Rhino 5 and learning it now going through tutorials.  I am having a hard time fixing some naked edges modeling a shampoo bottle right now.  I modeled the bottle grip details on one side and then mirrored it to the other side, but for some strange reason, the mirrored geo did not line up perfectly even though I started modeling with the center being at the origin.

I've attached the rhino file if someone could please enlighten me on how to fix this…

Extending multiple surfaces to meet and join each other

I started with a large polysrf composed mainly on triangles meeting at different angles, exploded it and offset the individual srfs, now I need to create a new polysrf by extending and joining all of these srfs together.  Essentially it needs to be the same polysrf but larger by the offset distance.

The original joined polysrf will not offset properly, I've tried JoinEdge, ConnectSrf, MatchSrf, ExtendSrf, as well as everything else in my bag of tricks.

The offset srf represents…

Basically the Program then tells me that I have run out…

looking for some to write a simple script

I am looking for someone to write a rhino script that will work on a folder with multiple files.  What I want to do is change the object properties to a dark shade of green from the default which is black.  So In a nut shell what i want is open file, select all, change object color to dark green and save.  I have tried with my limited knowledge and can't seem to get it to work.  Hope some one can help.

Rhino 5 Upgrade

I'm retired so I spend money only when necessary, but I just upgraded to v5.  It took a few months, but I concluded that it was a necessity.  In 1968 I was at GE programming an IBM 7090 in Fortran to design the antenna for the Pioneer spacecraft to Jupiter.  The computer was the size of my current house and had a whopping 32 Kb of core memory.  WOW!   That was a really big machine back then - it would be another two years before HP would come out with the first 4 function calculator WITH A…

I am trying  model Villa Sovaye like the tutorial on VisialARQ but I am having trouble when creating the columns or walls. Everytime I try to draw the columns The plan I imported on Rhino scales up without me doing anything. How can I fix that? I watched the step by step tutorial and in there they don't have that problem. Any tips in how can I prevent my floor plan image from scale while trying to draw the columns?
