Constant Length Curve

Hello,

I’d like to play with modeling real world materials - say a length of steel that is 20’. Is there any way to maintain a constant length of a curve while manipulating handles/control points?

Thank you.

You would probably best do that using Grasshopper.

That’s what I was afraid. Any good starting points? I’m familiar with GH but I wouldn’t know how to approach it.

Hello - look at Kamgaroo, I’d say, it may well have some stuff for that.

Thanks very much!
