Projected Shape

Salut les gars! Je suis un nouveau membre de cette communauté.

Je rencontre un problème en projetant une forme sur une autre.

Le problème est que l’outil Sanbox déforme ma forme, ce que je ne veux pas.

C’est un peu difficile à expliquer mais j’aimerais le même résultat que lorsqu’on colle une affiche sur un mur =)

Avez-vous une idée pour éviter cela.

Peut-être avec un plugin.

I added a file to better understand my problem.

Thank for your help guys.

Sandbox could do it but you’d need to turn the box to vertical and put it under the shape you want to project.

What are you really trying to accomplish, though? Maybe you just need to rotate the shape and use Push/Pull to extrude it through the side of the box. Then use Intersect Faces.

If you share the .skp file and give us more information it would help us help you.

Thank you for your help.

Here is the result after projection with the sandbox tool and It’s not what I want.

And yes I would like to extrude the result after.

What exactly do you want? Do you have a picture of the sort of thing you want to accomplish? How do you want to extrude it?

Again, upload the .skp file so we can see what you have exactly.

Thank again for your help.

Here is my file

Ok, so what are you wanting to do with it?

You still haven’t explained exactly what you are trying to accomplish. Is what @Box showed thething you are after?

Here I’ve projected the shape through the side of the box, then selected the outer surface only and used Intersect Faces. Then I used Joint Push/Pull to extrude the region inside because you wrote:

So many options.


or you can use Flowify

Thank Mihai.s

And thank you for the others.

That’s what I wanted to make

It’s was a bit difficult to explain.

Thank again

So you didn’t want to project the shape, you wanted to drape it.

I was wondering, briefly, what is the difference between a projected shape and a draped shape.?

Think of projected as what you’d get with a slide in a slide projector. In this case the result that Box and I show is projected. Draped would be what you get if you dropped a thin pancake onto the curved surface like Miha.s shows.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
Thank you so much for clarifying.
I had tried an extension by Didier Bur called projection extension about a month ago. I found it easier to just stay with intersect selection (as you showed). Intersect is my bread and butter for projection and Trim for cutting.

Hi @mihai.s

Hope you don’t mind me picking your brains with a query on the Tools on Surface GIF.

After drawing the vertical edge, you appear to draw an edge down the middle of the shape. Can I ask what that is for?

Kind regards


Hi Michael,
I just wanted to see how long the eclipse was (then I calculated the half). It was only indicative.
