How to draw a layer above a construction

Hello there,

For now I did draw everything manually using the line tool.
Very time consuming.

I did add a basic sample skp file, what in this sample my start and goal is. BTW, in several constructions that need a layer they are a mix of groups and components. Also I’am using SU2021.

Any pointers how to do it more easily and faster?

And of course thank you for any suggestions.


With Follow Me tool.

I get the forbidden cursor.

Open the group by right-clicking on it

Thank you for this. Top. I always underestimate the followMe tool.

However I got a mix of groups and components, and can’t select the whole path at once. so I need to do them separately. I guess!

The starting point to get the line to begin with is a problem for me.

In the past I did duplicate the elements/objects to another file; explode everything; select the to follow line; weld it; drag it a little up, and use the Offset tool to create a thickness for the layer. Then did this again for the second layer using the first layer.

I did hope to find a contour tool/plugin that create the outline fo selected objects.
