Lay curves flat

Hi Moi'ers

I think I have missed a simple function of laying multiple curves flat in one action.
Anyone that could give me a hint how to make this simple?

I sometimes use the curves of a loft shape and I need to rotate and put on ground in one action (I do it manually if less than 20 curves but sometimes I have up to 60-70 curves to rotate, explode move and put on ground)

(The curves is used for a CNC file)

There is a script for 'RotateObjects' but it only rotate on the XY ground plane, I wish to use it in the Z axes as well

 

Thanks

Hi Stardust, I don't remember any script to do that particular type of rotation and movement.

Can you post the RotateObjects script that rotates in the XY plane? I'll take a look at modifying it.

Also please post the 3DM file with your curves in it so I can test with your data.

Hi Michael

Thank you for the quick respond,

I have attached the script 'RotateObjects' which was included in Burrman's commands collection. (Great collection Burrman)
It would be great to enable the Z axes for rotation as well
(I then use explodemove and putonground for the rest of the action to prepare the dxf file)


Thanks

Hi Stardust, please try the attached updated version, it has an added "Plane" option which lets you control the rotation plane for either Top, Front, or Right.

Hope that helps!
