Allign geometry to xy plane


(Fedezorrozua) #1

Hello everyone,

I need to orient a couple of surfaces to de xy plane because I want them all to be alligned.

any thoughts?

I leave the file attached here with the data internalized,


The surfaces are already alligned along a curve, I need them to be plain and alligned to de x-axis.

I have to say it looks quite chaotic in there, (your geometry is somewhere near Alpha Centauris)
I tried doing what I understood you wanted: aligning the surfaces with the xy plane and putting them on a series, one next to the other.
However I didn’t manage to make all normals look up (two faces look up, all the rest look down)
I have exhausted my forum time, so I hope it is enough for you, or otherwise maybe you can take it from here…

also: usually, when we ask a question, we can ‘internalize data’ so as not to have to upload the whole definition.

thanks for the try man!
however, what you managed to do was already done. What I was trying to ask for is the allignment of the faces you mentioned, I would like to make all the surfaces lay in the XY plane.
thanks, happy weekend.

Start Aris time then (related with the walk to the hilly path, that is): mastermind an approach to flatten the things in exact the same relation that they have in the List (skip Jitter obviously).

You’ll find that critical for the real-life things that you are after (AEC things, not art). (24.5 KB)
