Orientating planes to centre point

You have two circles and then you loft them, the created surface is then populated with points and then the planes are attached to them. The lofted shape is given a centre. How can you make the plane always face the centre of the circle?

You can create planes by centre point and normal vector, so since you know the plane centres P_{plane} and the shape centre P_{shape}, all you have to do is create a vector from P_{plane} to P_{shape}.

Though do note that the rotation around this normal vector is undefined and may not be what you want. If that’s the case a fully unambiguous transform will be required.

Hi, Thanks for the information. After making the plane vertical, how do you manipulate its face to orientate towards the centre?
