Non uniform line thickness

Hello there

Is there a way in grasshopper or rhino for that matter to control the line weight (thickness)? In the attached image you see that the curve is bulging in the middle.

Thanks in advance,

There are many ways to do it
Make a pipe with a unique color and no shading. It could be more “light” to use a mesh pipe
You could make a surface (loft), I did that here

You can make a lot of dots of differents size

Variable offset (in Peacock plugin)

Variable Sweep in Heteroptera

You can also check Peacock Plugin which has a user-object to do that.
