Hi there, I have two curves in 3D space which I am trying to make a ruled surface from. So far I have divided these curves and run an adaptive component (a line) between them. The issue with this is that the lines are not straight when viewed from side on, refer to image below for explanation. What I thought I could do to get around this is to:
- Use the top chord's divisions to drive a perpendicular plane; and
- Find the intersecting point between this plane and the bottom chord - then the lines will be 'straight' from the side on view
Is this a good methodology? It’s tricky because the intersecting planes are not tangential to the curve.
