Hello,

Why the control point is not set to 0.707106781186548 by default?

Is confusing.

I wish to put it by default. Is that possible?

Thanks

What control point should be set to \sqrt{2} \over 2 , and why that value?

Dear @AlanMattano

Please give more infos / context to your question.

use

_arc

or

_circle

command to get â€śExpectedâ€ť

in most circumstances you will not be able to build part of a circle with a

_curve Degree = 2 Curve

of course you can adapt the weight, but for anything else then 90 degree

(weight = sqrt(2)/2) you will need more math to figure out the correct weight. (assuming CV-Position is correct)

â€¦ diggingâ€¦ it seams quite accessible weight = sin(alpha)

Hello Tom P,

I was trying to change the default `curve`

value from 1 to 0.707â€¦

I do not have a clear idea of what Iâ€™m asking.

So Iâ€™m testing making a fuselage.

YES, It looks like the way to go is to use `arc`

semi-circle instead of the `curve`

command is the way to go.

Thanks for your replay

Keep in mind that poiint weights are relative - setting all to the same number is the same as all being 1 (default). Weights are useful, as far as I know, only when they vary.
