So I spent most of today trying to lay and nest my vertical ribs without making them 2d. I’m new here . I’ve tried OpenNest and Fabtools but both are more for 2d objects moving along one axis. My guess is that I’d need to some how find the plane of each rib and then orient them to the proper horizontal plane.
I have to do a flip mill operation on the ribs which is why they need to stay 3d. I can’t use bowerbird because I need to stay in nurbs. I of course can do this manually but future projects are just too complex. I’d rather focus on other area if possible.
Once I’m horizontal I’m sure I can use arrange or pack to organize. That’s the easier part.
I’ll post a model and def in a bit when I get near my computer.
