no perpendicular

Phenom
Phenom

I received a 3D file (stl) from a bended plywood part.

 

I need to drill holes, perpendicular on the surface.

To do this I draw a scetch, perpendicular and create a surface 'Normal to curve'.

 

The only problem is, SE doesn't want to make the line perpendicular. I can work around by drawing a 2nd line and make this one tangent to the curve and the make the first line perpendicular to the tangent line.

 

So SE understands it all, it just doesn't want to do it...

I ran into this making lines perpendicular to a Bezier curve.
