Hello there!

I' m using rhino for a while but I need some advice to resolve one of my latest issues!

I particularly like/use the ''contour'' command and I was wondering if there is a trick

to use this command not only along one axis (x,y,z) but along a curve so that the contours remain perpendicular to the curve/path that generated the polysurface!(take a look at the pic...)

ps. one idea was to array the circle along the path and then use the section command or something but I'm not sure that this is the best way ...

pss. I'm not using GH

Hi Lef- for now, you may get what you want from the RadialSections script near the bottom of the page here: http://wiki.mcneel.com/people/pascalgolay

It accepts curves as well as radial input- 

To use the script, extract and save the .rvb file from the attached zip archive, then drag and drop the saved rvb over an open Rhino V4 or v5 window. This will load the script, set it up to load on startup in the future and register an alias

SectionRadial

SectionPath

that will run the script much like a regular command. The alias can be typed or added to a toolbar button or keyboard shortcut (F-key).

thank you very much!

much appreciated! :)

Have you tried "sweep one rail" using the circle as the object to sweep ?
