I have an issue while projecting a eyewear frame silhouette to a curved surface. The problem being a strong deformation in the geometry of the projected curve from the original. I understand why this is happening, but I was wondering if there is a way of making it work while keeping the measurements of the original planar sketch.
I have tried the FlowAlongSrf command using the Squish surface output as the base surface, and while it does create a fairly decent result in keeping the frame’s proportions, it tends to squash the sketch horizontally. Following this, I have tried to resize both the sketch and the base surface, but didn’t seem to find any correlation among the results in order to make it work. The pull command pretty much does the same thing.
The image bellow demonstrates what is happening. I am aware that it is unlikely to get no deformation. Ideally, I’d like the width measurement to be the same, I don’t mind the extra ‘enarchment’ of the top curve.
Any help is appreciated.
