Projected curve: enter image description here

If anybody has any ideas that would be great. Also, the issue is not only a 'visual' issue, but also a functional issue. I am attempting to use the projected curve in a swept cut, but I get errors. Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ It is not parallel, the face I am projecting onto is at an angle from the plane being projected. Could this be the issue? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. A projection is always perpendicular to the viewing plane. $\endgroup$

You: It is not parallel, the face I am projecting onto is at an angle from the plane being projected. Could this be the issue?

From Wikipedia:

Orthographic projection is a means of representing three-dimensional objects in two dimensions. It is a form of parallel projection, in which all the projection lines are orthogonal (perpendicular) to the projection plane, resulting in every plane of the scene appearing in affine transformation on the viewing surface. Orthographic projection.

Yes. That's the problem.
