I have a 3d model of a boat hull. i am going to send the parts for router cutting and want to have the router layout pen lines for alignment of bulkheads. is there a way to mark the plates before un wrapping the hull?
thanks in advance
i found this it does work, seems like alot of work for such a simple thing. is there another easier method?
hei'ya Dave, not sure without a scrnsht or file,
but would "intersection curve" and "wrap>scribe"
give you the markings you want- kelef
heres the file im working on
hei'ya Dave, so l should know by now - "3d model" of a boat hull, isn't a "3d "model boat hull
mixed it up a bit, sorry senior moment, l'll take a look over the w/end,
l guess individual "swept-cut" is not what you are looking for,
do you need allround markings(of the bulkheads and ribs),
or just lateral for the bulkheads(front and back of each position)
not sure l know enough to be a great help but l'll give it a whirl- have a good'n kelef
i would prefer the outboard side of the longditudinals and either side of the bulkheads. doesnt really matter what size as long as i know which side. i sent a request in to Hawkridge systems to see what they say
i will keep you updated
Hei'ya Dave, that answer is the one l was referng to in-
"l guess individual "swept-cut" is not what you are looking for"
but as you say, it works, l was thinking of looking at a mix of
solids/boolean add/subtract, alternatively the "senior moment" thought,
which puts the "model" inside a sphere and use the wrap function to hash
out the markings- never used it on complex models but it still takes a bit of
work, just had idea, maybe post on other forums, API or Sketching/Macro wanted,
instead of just sheetmetal- sorry dude that's about all l got-have a good'n
