Perpendicular orient on a surface

Hi Community,

Could someone please advise how I can orient the hexagonal pipe shape flush onto the red triangular surface (so that the pipe is coming out perpendicular to the triangle. I have tried various cplane orientations and orient on surface commands but I don’t think I have the correct workflow. As you can see the model has a number of different planes so I would like to have a solid understanding of this technique so I can model on top of my existing structure.

Thank you in advance!


Hello - if you start with your pipe sitting on the top (or any) Cplane you can set a Cplane (CPlane > Object) to the triangle and use RemapCplane, (or OrientOnSrf).


Hi Pascal I will try this one as well.

Thank you so much!
