If you can imagine wrapping a paper label around an aluminum can. I’m trying to wrap a 2D grid around an extruded curved surface; the surface curves in one dimension, unlike any complex surfaces, so the 2D pattern should not deform.
You could see in the attached definition that I’ve started aligning the triangular grid at the flat part of the surface, and initially it does project well. However, where the surface curves to 90 degrees from the initial point, it becomes clear that the projection is purely 2D.
I tried to plug in the changing normal vector of the curve, as it turns, into the vector for the projection, but it isn’t working. Any ideas as to how I could achieve this? Thanks!
