I hope I can explain this well. We make boat decking and use a 3D scanner. Once the boat is meshed we use Rhino to develop fairly simple, mostly planar curves in the shape of the decking we want to CNC. As you can imagine, most boats have multiple levels (steps) and angles (ie, angled footrests). We’ve been creating a new cplane for each new area and drawing the parts on those. Our problem comes when it’s time to export these simple 2D shapes to our CAM package. We’ve been using the .dxf format.
We really need to find a way to get all of these curves onto a single plane, ideally (at least somewhat) aligned in X/Y as they began! ProjectCplane doesn work as it distorts any shapes that aren’t on a plane parallel to the target cplane and Make2D does the same thing. Besides manually rotating and manually aligning all of the pieces to the target plane, is there a simple way to get this process accomplished?
