I’ve modeled an amphora. It consists of a closed surface (amphora body, made using Revolve) and two trimmed surfaces (amphora handles, made using Sweep2). The handles reach out farther than the amphora body and I want to determine the max. width of the amphora (e.g. if I wanted to place them side by side, what’s that repeating unit distance).
I figured I could take a cross-section of the amphora but I don’t know how. I tried ProjecttoCplane, but the trimmed surfaces are still surfaces even when flattened/projected and I can’t place a Point using Quad Osnap to get the maximum. (Cause then I’d measure distance between those points).
I don’t want to guess or approximate – it should be exact.
