See image:

I would like to project the red curve on to the illuminated surface of the solid. If viewed from the side, the straight lines of the curve line up with the edges of the surface. I would like to have a projection that ends up with the line on the edges and having an ellipse to connect the lines.

When I do project to CPLANE I get the green. Curve From Object>Project gives me the Yellow.

I want to get the projection from the perspective of the red shape, not from the perspective of the surface.


Hi Jim - if I understand what you’re after, which I may not, use CPlane View and then project.


Thanks, I think that I followed the directions. That gave me:

which I can edit to the correct.
