I’m looking for a command, or a series o commands, to split a curve (not linear) after a specific length. For example a 15cm not linear curve after 3,45cm… any suggestion? Thanks

Divide?

Just type it or under Menu:

Curve/point object/divide curve by/ length of segments

Hello - if I understand you, use `SubCrv`

with Mode=MarkEnds and then use the points to split the curve.

@lucavsnt Here’s a python script that Mitch @Helvetosaur created. It puts a point on the curve measured from either end. You can then split with that point.

The Mode=MarkEnds and the python script are not necessary.

- Start the SubCrv command.
- Select the curve.
- Pick new start of the curve.
- Type new length of the curve.
- Hit
`Enter`key.

Thank you very much!

Thank you very much, with SubCrv I have solved my problems…

If you want to `Split`

the curve, this is not the answer.

I used the divide command,

Select the length

Input the distance.

This worked well
