For our customer we need to make a simple 3D checking fixture (just make upper and side surface). The customer send us the basic surface (actually it represents e.g. front door glass in cars). Our company has Surfcam with 5 axis trim and we need to make the side surface which is perpendicular to the basic surface.
I start with offsetting basic surface by 35mm with Solid option On. The result is solid, which I explode to get side surface (other option is to get 2 edge curves from upper and bottom surface).
After finishing these steps I cannot continue because I do not know how can I create lines perpendicular to upper surface or edge curve within tolerance, e.g. 0,05mm. These lines are used as driving vectors for toolpath creation. The fixed distance is not suitable. I know how to do it in Surfcam, but I would like to make all operations in Rhino.
Thanks for ideas
