Re-orienting Curves


#1

Hello all,

This is more of a ‘Can it be done, and if so, what’s the best practise’ kind of question. As with my previous ‘Slatted Facade’ node, I was wondering the best way to go about documenting this for actual build-ability? In the real world this would most likely be CNC routed out, so I guess the output would be a compatible file type, however, I’m looking for options to document this from a design point of view.

I’ve got to a point now with the perimeter curves correctly taken off. What I think I desire is for these to do the following:

  • Orient them all onto the same plane.
  • Array them consistently on said plane with a 'gap'.
  • Dimension to my hearts content.
So far the PolyCurve outlines are as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The intention is for an output to be roughly as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then again, this could be a stupid approach :smiley: So any other thoughts would be much appreciated.
