Align locators with points normals from a surface


1. I have a Locator following a curve (coming from an edge  surface)

2. I would like to align the Y axis locator with the closest points normals from this surface

3. As it seems we can't import locators inside BG, I tried to align a cube first, with a sphere taking informations about closest point on surface.


But I guess I am doing something wrong about the part when I want to copy the orientation

update : I finally use sample property to get the position and the normal.

Now I try to figure how to use these infirmations to constraint an object orientation in BG
