Programmatically creating a surface with holes

Hi, in OpenStudio SDK I can create a surface by a vector of points using the constructor. I am just wondering if it is possible to create a surface with holes? I know the points along the outer as well as inner perimeters of my surface. Many thanks.

Here's another question: can you create a surface with holes in E+ to begin with? You can't, cf here.

So you'd have to split your "hole-containing" surface into two. The rest is somewhat basic, yet really annoying, geometry (as in the underlying concepts are fairly simple, but the implementation is harder!)

Thank you Julien, I wasn't aware of that. Will split the surface then.
