Any ideas how would you approach creation of mold parting line in Rhino?
So far I had to do this rather rarely but to be honest haven't come up with efficient solution (usually I tracked draft angle analysis result).
The command Silhouette looking from the pull direction will give you a "dirty" solution that will generally include the parting line and a bunch of other stuff, after some cleanup, you can usually end up with something workable.
thx Helvetosaur :) ,
Got to admit that that's the solution I've been trying out today. But the issue is that it does not do a good job on complex polysurfaces - each surface gets an outline , which is a major pain.
I've hoped that mesh outline will work - sadly it is only a projection upon a given cplane. If the result of the meshoutline would actually stay on object that would be the solution :) .
Will try to get it work with some projections - will share the results :) .
