Surface Boundaries

When surfaces are built they are built in the order the surface components are added. This feature can be frustrating when using boundaries. When I add a boundary I expect the boundaries to be added at the end, but this isn't the case. So if you add other breaklines, points or other components to the surface definition that are outside of the boundaries they will cause the boundary to appear to not be honored. If you want the boundary to be applied last, then you will have to add the boundary definition to the surface again. Hopefully someday Autodesk will add functionality to be able to adjust the order of how the surface is built. Until then I will just reapply the boundaries. This applies to both outer and hide boundaries.
