I have an STL file of a plate(Orthopedic plate) which is used in fixation of bones. I am working on the topic of generating an algorithm for a machine capable of bending this type of plate. The STL file has been generated via CT scanning. In this plate, it has features like Bending in two directions, twisting, and holes. In the algorithm, I must find the exact position of the bends and holes so that command can be given to machine to do the bending and twisting sequentially. Since I have not used OpenCascade earlier so I'm not sure whether this kind of problem can be solved using this tool. I, actually, have no idea how to straightforwardly proceed with this topic. I have started this topic by feature recognition method.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you for giving your time in reading this.
