Auto-orient planar Srfs to XY Plane? Bonus for nesting

Hi all,

I am teaching a 3D Foundations class this semester that will involve laser cutting some flat shapes. Is there any way to allow students to use gumball to intersect planar srf’s 3-dimensionally then auto-magically orient them to the XY plane for laser cutting?



@declan, the macro below is maybe enough if you select a single planar surface:

! _Select _Pause _CPlane _Surface _EnterEnd _RemapCPlane _CPlane "Top" _CPlane _Previous

if not, you might provide a before & after file.


UnrollSrf may help.


Thanks guys.
