Open the file Topology.Shell.ds in the DS Editor and run it. The script is shown below.

Now open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script, Topology.Shell.ds into a blank canvas.

Now comment out the “(import(ProGeometry.dll)” script as highlighted above.  It can now be run as a Code Block of script, before the translation to Nodes takes place.

Liberty was taken with making the color have some transparency as shown above in the graphic window.
