I need help with a rib builder I'm trying to build. I know there is the grillage fabricator out there but i want mine to behave a little differently. And i promise to share the definition once i've finished.
So my problem is;
I have divided the geometry in the x and y as curves. So i have these curves and i want to lay them out flat on a sheet in the x & y plane. But for some reason i can't get it to work.
So i need help with this. Any ideas.
I want to lay out these curves first and then i plan on offsetting them, closing them and then adding the notching. I think this way is better because it will enable me to chop up any free form surface and make a rib type construction with the laser cutter.
So your help would be most appreciated. Attached is a model file and also the start of the definition.
