Currently at work, we have Rhino V5 SR13. I’m having an issue exporting a flat surface via OBJ and keeping the polylines / isocurves.
I have a requirement to export a flat surface to a program called Unfolder for MAC. It requires an OBJ and splits the file along polylines (or isocurves - apologies I come from a CAD background) into separate shapes that can be nested onto A4 pages and printed to create a cut and stick together template.
So the file I have got in Rhino looks like the following:
When I export as OBJ it meshes and the lines work. Problem is, I would like the mesh lines to line up at a predefined grid position (159.2mm x 246.2mm) so I can split in the mac program unfolder. As per below:
I have tried using contours, polylines, rebuild… everything looks fine but as soon as I export, the mesh settings override what I have done and I end up with the following:
I know its me lack of knowledge that’s causing this. Can this be done?
Thanks in advance, I have been banging my head against the wall for days now.
EDIT: I have attached the Rhino file if it helps.
