Giving a curve height


#1

Say I have a planar (poly)curve, is there a function to elevate this curve in a way where you give a length and a height value and the curve moves for each length value the height value in the non-planar direction?

I realise my English is a bit rusty so here is an image to clarify what I’m asking for:

Thank you!

Hi Rave,

I would suggest and use the command Flow for that.
You basically create a straight line the same length as the curve.
On top of that you create the elevated curve as you want.
Next use the flow command to flow the curve from the straight line over the curves one.
