Find a Normal of a curve (line perpendicular to curve)

Hi,

Fairly simpel question but I can’t find it.
Is there a component which generates the Normal to a curve?

So drawing a curve which is perpendicular to the curve?

Thanks :slight_smile:

In which plane?

Perp Frame or Evaluate Curve would be the two commands / components to start with

Ahh perfect, thank you!

1 small layout question, how do you get the diplay of the component name above the component?
That is really handy! :slight_smile:

Thanks again! :+1:
