- 2020-06-10 first test split surface. Splits analytic curves, not the mesh.
- create contours S24, S25 from curves;
- make offset-contours S26, S27

- create surface from polygon 1000 x 800, load image as texture
- take contours as B-splines, polygons from image
- modify the B-spline-points
- export contours in DXF-format.

- create and activate new NC-process
- cut 3 contours, start postprozessor

- measure between points

- modify single values
