Is the project loose geometry feature in Sketchup OS plugin available through the SDK?

I would like to draw a curtain wall spanning multiple spaces using the SDK and have it project on to the spaces.

The closest thing in the SDK is Surface::createSubSurfaces. There is a C++ example using this method to add skylights here.

Dan i tried doing that but when i created a subsurface that was larger then the surface it deleted the subsurface. But in Sketchup i can create a loose geometry and project it onto multiple spaces.

Well I think that is a valid use case for that method, we can look at extending the method to handle it in the future.
