surface tesselation

i've been working on tessellating complex surfaces with flat panels. in order to achieve fixed seams triangulation seems to be the obvious choice so focus can be applied on the design of the reveal between panels. this script plots a grid of points on the surface, draws a polyline through 3 points, rounds the edges of the polyline, and then creates the panel surface.
