I have a dream…
I know that software exists to do this (A certain CAD software manufacturer has one of these for free download), but I’m hoping to find a means in Rhino.
Take a 3D model and slice into a stack of profile, both left to right and top to bottom, calculate where the “slots” would be (the intersections of the profiles) then use those parts to create a pattern to be laser-cut.
I know that I can create contours of a model which gets me partway to what I need, but it still requires gobs of manual work to get to the laser pattern.
My guess is that I need to look into some scripting or beg the Rhino developers for a new function.
