Knot osnap and edit point

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to understand what is the knot osnap is for. I though that is was the edit point (not the control point). however knot osnap doesn’t always snap to the edit point and snap on the curve on a random place on the curve.
So are knot and edit point not the same? and if not how to display them?

Thanks in advance

Paul

Hi Paul - knots and edit points are not the same - currently the only way to see knot locations on a curve is with the InsertKnot and RemoveKnot commands. Some curves (single span) will only have knots at the ends.

Oh ok, so what is the knot osnap usually used for if you can’t visualise them?(just out of curiosity)

Hi Paul - it is certainly less commonly used, but if you, for example, split a curve exactly on a knot, then the resulting curves will be simpler and cleaner than if you miss by just a little.

e.g. cyan = knot locations

Ok i see, thanks for the explanation Pascal
