Can someone point me as to how to obtain the geometry of the surface highlighted below? This is for packaging design so as to achieve a perfect circle when viewing the packaging from the front.
Is this a cylindrical package / carton with a circular clear view port to view the interior contents? ...if so, then I'd make a plane offset from the surface, then sketch a circle on the plane that is centered on the axis of the cylinder. Then I'd use a split line to create a new face on the surface. Delete the face, or convert to transparent.
It looks like you have a round hole cutting half way (to the center of) thru the cylinder. If so select the circle at the center of the cylinder rather than the outer edge.
Alternately, if you used a sketch circle (or hole wizard) select the circle in the sketch.
Thanks for the replies guys. So I need the geometry for a label design, sorry I probably wasn't clear enough there.
But what I did was convert the tub to sheet metal and then flatten it. I can then create a 1:1 drawing and bring the geometry into Illustrator.
Solved! Thanks for the input.
