Embedding Custom Isocurve Toolpaths Part 1: Surface Normals

Course or Collection: 
Video Duration: 
13 minutes
Brian Ringley

This tutorial covers how to create a variable positional relationship between the tool tip and the toolpath to avoid gauging and enhance the aesthetic relationship between custom-generated toolpaths and surface draft angle. This tutorial builds off of concepts learned in the "Custom Toolpaths from Surface Isocurves" Part 1 and Part 2 videos. A "starter" Grasshopper definition, which picks up from where these last tutorials left off, is available for download below, and the following images are included to help illustrate the differences in tool tip positioning relative to the toolpath.
