Is there a command that can be used to digitize points to a surface?
What I tried unsuccessfully doing is this:
Create a 3 or 4 point surface from digitizer picks on an existing surface of an object.
Then set the construction plane to that surface.
Then digitize picks along the edge of the thing I’m digitizing, which is the perimeter of the surface.
Only thing is, the points are in 3d space, and do not land on that surface plane.
Can someone tell me a simple and effective way to accomplish what I’m trying to do?
Another thing I want to do is make a circle on a surface by 3 pics of the digitizer.
All the digitized points fall in 3d space. So the circles are not planar.
Is there a command to make digitizer pics fall on a construction plane?
Reason I ask is b/c I’ll be doing this for various shapes, and want them all to fall on the construction plane.
I don’t want to use snap-to-surface, b/c it adds an enormous amount of work while digitizing zillions of points.
Thanx! … Chris
