hi.

i am searching a few inputs for a script. it's about calculation the amount of water a drainage must be able to take for landscape architecture terrains.

thus i need the information in which direction the water will flow based on the slopes of any shaped nurbs surface.

is there a way to determine the «watershed curves» (i don't know the proper word) that define the «deepest» and «highest» curves of a surface, to where the water will flow when rain's falling?

mathematically, these curves should be well defined and thus should be «calculatable»...

thanks for any hint.
