Look at the ‘test’ layer by itself.
I need to trim the surface on the C-plane using the x-y boundaries of the pipe. Then I will have a silhouette surface of the pipe on the C-plane; so this would look like a ribbon directly under the pipe on the C-plane. I then want to extrude the surface upward to make walls that intersect the pipe, then trim the walls with the pipe.
I know I can’t trim the surface with a solid. I’ve tried projecting the pipe to the c-plane, which works, but the result is a closed polysurface, which I can’t use to trim with. How can I get curves that represent the x-y dimensions of the pipe with which I can trim the surface. thanks, rex
