ooops sorry, I need to revisit that explanation.
Means I need to call S curves as S curves, not degree 2 curves !
How would one use FitCurve to kill any S bend ? I saw the degree option and hoped that was it !
I need to retain start and end points, kill any S bends, follow original curve as best as possible. keep planar.
something with a set of sliders so that the curvature graph changed on the fly would be nice.
- pick points curve must pass through
- tick box kill S curves
- tolerance to original shape, maybe a radius of effect beyond area of change option.
drag slider to see on the fly changes.
I would love to find a set of exercises that cover all the curve editing one might experience, well at least most, covering what the commands are capable of.
A day online in curve class or having downloaded McNeel exercises or watched a few videos I would well make use of.
I still long for the handle curves…I shall visit my other post to see what was the answer there, as Rhino22 also shared my need.
Curve editing is not easy…for me. The handle curve method in Freehand was so user friendly, that with accuracy in Rhino would be good. Unless the handle crossed the curve one had no S bend, smooth transition through points, and could move curve at those points to a new location/point and all behaved itself.
I will when I get time import a few tests from Freehand and see if the CurvatureGraph like the results. No doubt that isnt final seal of approval some other reason for unacceptable, but it would be interesting to see if any S bends occur with the handles all outboard of the curves.
How do others find Rhino curve editing, I would like to know.
