Project Curve on Surface


#1

Is there a component that will allow me to project a curve on a surface that creates a new curve?

Hi Greg,


as far as I know, there is currently no node like that.


However, I could imagine two possible (albeit clumsy) workflows:


1. Project points hosted on the curve onto the surface and create a new curve from them - although I don't believe this would be very accurate depending on the type of curve and chosen resolution.


2. Extrude the curve in such a way that it intersects the surface and use the Face-Face Intersection node (as far as I know that node only works in Vasari Beta 3, though) - this would at least be a cleaner method than the first option I suggested.


I think this would be a great feature request for the GitHub site.
