I was wondering how to move groups of vertices along a line. This picture shows what I want to do:

model and target shape

I want to move the vertices and edges inside the dark black line so that they are flush to the thick line. if anyone knows a macro for this please post it here.

  • $\begingroup$ You can probably cut this in half and then use the skrinkwrap modifier to stick that half to the other (thick line) surface in the y direction (your green line). $\endgroup$ – Qutorial Dec 31 '15 at 0:58
  • $\begingroup$ Please clarify. Are the terms dark black line .... thick line ... the same? I assume the orange line is NOT a desired shape. $\endgroup$ – atomicbezierslinger Dec 31 '15 at 7:31

The original object can have a Shrink Wrap Modifier added. Later you may choose to press the Apply Button or Apply as Shape Key.

The target of the shrink wrap. Cube Scaled on X axis in edit mode with Mirror Modifier and Empty placed at center. You can be more artistic.
