From TouchDesigner 088 Wiki

Summary

The Line Thick SOP extrudes a surface from a curved line. The line can be of polygon, NURBS, or Bezier geometry type.

Parameters

Group /group - If there are input groups, specifying a group name in this field will cause this SOP to act only upon the group specified. Accepts patterns.

Startwidth 1 / 2 /startwidth - Controls the width of the surface created at the start of the line. Startwidth1 adjusts the width on the inside of the curve, Startwidth2 adjusts the width on the outside of the curve.

Endwidth 1 / 2 /endwidth - Controls the width of the surface created at the end of the line. Endwidth1 adjusts the width on the inside of the curve, Endwidth2 adjusts the width on the outside of the curve.

Divisions /divisions - Number of Divisions (Columns) in the surface geometry created.

Rows /rows - Number of Rows in the surface geometry created.

Domain 1 / 2 /domain - Fraction of the input curve that is used to create the new surface geometry. Domain1 sets position on the curve for Startwidth, Domain2 sets position on the curve for Endwidth.

Shape /shape - This menu selects the type of interpolation used between Startwidth and Endwidth.

Symmetric /symmetric - When this is selected, the Endwidth is positioned at the middlepoint on the curve between Domain1 and Domain2. Startwidth is placed at Domain1 and Domain2. The result is a symmetric surface.

Inputs / Geometry Types

Source Input - Input the SOP containing the curves that you want to extrude. The input can be polygons curves , NURBS curves, or Bezier curves, or any combination of the three types. You can use any type of polygonal surface geometry as well, each face will be extruded separately.
