Wondering what the best way to create a 2d file that one can use to CNC the pattern from the attached basket-weave mesh? I’ve tried silhoulette and make 2d and they both generate 2d curves but even when I run Convert they have a lot of points. Short of tracing every nook and cranny I’m wondering if there’s any kind of short cut…
Just to clarify, I am not trying to make a 3d print or a 3 axis cnc file to cut from foam but a simplified flattened pattern that would be cut from mdf.
Hi Cosmas - for some reason I cannot open your RAR here…
Just uploaded it to you, Pascal. Thank you.
Hi Cosmas - it looks like
Silhouette, from Top, will get you curves (polylines) to work with - is that enough?
ProjectToCplane to flatten… looks like you may need to do a bit of sorting and editing…
You can explode a silhouette polyline and then use
SelChain > Tangency, and 35 degrees angle tol or something large like that to select chains of segments to join back together.
Wow, let me try that Pascal. Thank you.
