Clipping plane - Snapping to the clipping plane edge

(Afp) #1

Does anyone know if there is a way to be able to snap to the intersection of a clipping plane with a surface or polysurface? I’m trying to accurately dimension the cross section of the cut solids in a clipped perspective view.


Here’s a horrible way of doing it. Make a planar surface as the clipping plane. Then intersect the geometry. Then you may have to explode the intersected curves to get lengths on them. —-Mark

Thank you Mark. I’ll try that. I just wish Rhino would recognize the clipping plane and allow you to snap to the endpoints. It would be very useful. Perhaps a Rhino 7 upgrade? Any thoughts from Rhino developers?

Hello - a trick to get those curves might be:

! _Intersect _InfinitePlane

Selct the clipping plane, then all the other objects.

It worked without having to explode the curves! Thank you Mark and Pascal.
