  • Figure 1 - Project Interface

Purpose: This interface provides various methods of projecting nodes to a plane, to a mesh, or to CAD curves. The planes can be normal to global x, y, z directions or normal to a vector defined by 2 nodes or a plane defined by 3 nodes.

Optionally the projection can be performed on a copy of the selected elements. In this case the original selected elements are retained at their starting location.

Controls:

  • Plane: Select plane of projection
  • (Norm X/Norm Y/Norm Z/N1-N2/N1-N2-N3/To Mesh/To Curve/To Surface)

  • cbc Pick node on plane of p - Pick a node on the plane of projection

  • Node ID: Enter a node ID on the plane of projection (Hit enter to accept)
  • XYZ: Enter x, y, z coordinates on the plane of projection

  • cbc Node1 - Enter first node ID for N1-N2 and N1-N2-N3 planes
  • cb Node2 - Enter second node ID
  • cb Node3 - Enter third node ID

  • cbc Along - Project nodes along specified direction
