does anyone know how to extract the pierce points that result from a line passing through a solid OR another way that achieves the same objective?? for example: a cylinder represents all lines parallel AND a specified distance from a given center line. doing things like pipe/tube routing it's necessary to find the piece points where a second line passes through the cylinder............ close isn't good enough for the Shark geometry engine (a good thing) !!

I'd use a box edge to define the line and surface/surface intersect between the box and the other object.

The "Curve/Surface Intersect" tool will set a point where the line passes through the surface/solid. The point may be hard to see, so use the wireframe view and look carefully to see them.

to locate that small points you can use "select mask" which allows to select points only
