Hi,

I've got complicated cylinder-like geometry and I want to create a line, that goes through the middle of entire geometry. Do you have any idea, how I could do it? I haven't found any helpfuf tools in the program.

I'm thinking about creating the line with several stages:
1) creating several intersection faces
2) creating mid-points on these faces
3) creating a 3Dline from these points
but this is very work-around and might be inaccurate.

Please give me some advices.

Regards,
Destroy

create new coordinate at the location and create a line on that coordinate

OK, but how to create this line? Which option?

right, but I want to make a curve, that will be some kind of symmetry. Every point of this line will be equally distant from the boundary

you want to make a line or curve?
thr is option to create curve as well

choose your coordinate system as such to have equal distance from boundary

sorry i cant help without looking at your geometry or may you need to explain it more

Here you can see the geometry with the coordinate system. I want to create a curve that will go through the domain (the red curve which I painted by hand).

may i ask why you need to create a line thru this solid cylinder?
are you going to draw something else inside?
