Use Line Fit to Match Surfaces

"Trace" mesh objects with control paths!

Shade's Line Fit command can let you precisely fit a curved surface to an imported polygon mesh, for easy creation of tightly-fitting clothes or other closely-modeled items. Select the mesh to which you want to fit the line, and the line (open or closed) that you want to have conform to the mesh, and select Modify>Line Fit; a dialog box will appear in which you can specify the offset, and click OK. Shade will then fit the line to the mesh, and you're done!
