Hi: I have a 3D part, and I need to project its outline onto a plane so I can machine its profile. How is this accomplished?
Can you give us a clue as to what the part looks like and where you want the plane? Maybe attach the part?
Convert Entities might be the short answer.
1. Create a parting line feature, using the plane as the direction. Use the "Split faces" option.
2. Project the Parting line, or the chains of parting line edges on the plane. That is the outline.
