I think I've asked this question once before, but I am not sure if anyone out there has an answer.

My question is, is there away that I could draw a Nurbs Curve right along a surface? As in the Nurbs Curb would fallow a certain shape.

For example, I am trying to re-create a a wire harness / Brake lines for a car, I have a reference scan of it, but I only have the A surface, the other side wasn't captured by the scanned.

enter image description here I have tried using the poly tool, but it's too complicated and takes a lot of time.

I appreciate any answers you could share with me Thank you :)

I would just use Snapping.

  • set Snapping to Face
  • grab a curve point while holding Ctrl to temporarily enable the Snap to follow the shape of a target object

You can also take a look at Shrinkwrap modifier, but it can be little tricky for this kind of usage. https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/modeling/modifiers/deform/shrinkwrap.html
