I am hoping to construct a platform, that will have multiple adjustable parts. This means the three lines (green, pink, and blue), will change
To get the distance of the purple line, I had to make a ‘fake floor’ object. The floor is parallel with the bottom tip pointed at by the pink arrow in the 2nd picture. The top part of the pink line, lines up with the bottom rear/outward edge of the suspended shelf, pointed by the green arrow in the 2nd image.
How would I get this distance of the pink line efficiently and precisely, without resorting to the ‘fake floor’?
I would also like to get the distance of the blue line. The left part of the blue line is supposed to align with the floor the base of the platform touches (green arrow), while at same time directly below the edge of the object pointed at with the double sided arrow…
A quick and efficient way to get the distance of the blue line, would also be appreciated.
