I’m modifying a model Tirpitz warship to 3D print in sections. I’m attempting to create bulkheads at the joints of each section but I’m struggling to find a reliable method of doing this.
So far I’ve tried using Bisect to create subdivides and then Extrude Region (Vertex Normals) which has the desired effect, however the extrusion is not flat along the same axis as the joint due to the shape of the hull. The bulkhead will be oriented on the bed of the printer so it must be perfectly flat. As you can see from the images below, the bulkhead is slightly bowed outwards:
Can anyone provide a better solution for this? I’ll have to do this 22 times for the ends of each section so a fast and reliable solution would be appreciated!
