Three ways to modify BentPlate objects using BentPlateGeometrySolver

  1. ModifyPolygon: modify contour of the PolygonNode geometry section.
  2. ModifyRadius: modify radius of the CylindricalSurfaceNode geometry section.
  3. ModifyCylindricalSurface: modify cylindrical surface of the CylindricalSurfaceNode geometry section.
