Does anyone know if there is an easy way to make a spline handle normal to a plane.
I can do this by making some construction lines.
However one would think you should be able to use a relation to make the handle normal to the plane.
I usually make a 3d sketch with short construction lines that have a point on the surface and perpendicular relations. The spline is usually another 3d sketch. I can hide the construction line sketch when done. Spline tangent relations are not always reliable, they can get an offset and remain off tangent. This is fixed by suppressing the relation and reactivating the relation.
Too bad we could not just use the spline handle and make it perpendicular to the surface, instead of having to draw in the sketch line.
Like Rick, I usually use a construction line.
I used construction lines using planes etc. Had not thought of generating a construction line in the while generating the 3D sketch. This option works well.
