Sorting curves by plane?

Hi everyone,

First post of '22, hope your fine and have a nice year :wink:

I’m working on contouring a complex solid with a series of planes

How can y sort my curves by the planes i used to contour in order to orient them grouped by plane number ? And is it possible to tag each curves by plane number ?

Thanks a lot

Instead of using planes to make the section curves, I’d simply use the Contour component and for numbering and nesting them, OpenNest is beneficial, because it distributes them strategically on a predefined sheet.

This saves space and thus manufacturing material.

You can download OpenNest from the Rhino PackageManager or get it on Food4Rhino.

I’ve also merged the co-planar surfaces that make up the bottom of your model, because they produced non-closed, fragmented section curves before. (21.6 KB)
