DESCRIPTION 

Any surface is transformed into a terraced model. 

PROCEDURE

1. Define the base plane of a surface’s bounding box 
2. Project the surfaces edges onto that base plane 
3. Loft the edges with their projection 
4. Join the lofted edges with the original surface into one Brep
5. Find the total height of the model and define the amount of wanted terraces 
6. Use Pframes to find the section curves with the primary and lofted surfaces 
7. Extrude the section curves and use them to create planar surfaces

This exercise is using Grasshopper version 1.0.0007
