Wish: curve distance analyze graph


#1

Hi,

I try to find a continuous growing distance between two curves and I miss a distance graph like known from the curvature graph - see screenshot. Could be great to get a tool that shows the distance only.

Ciao,
Micha

I’d find this useful too. However, for a workaround:

For a continuously increasing gap between two curves you can draw one curve, extrude it to make a vertical surface, and use variable surface offset to create a new surface closer to the original at one end than the other. Duplicate the bottom edge of the new surface and erase the surfaces and you’ve got your two curves.

Variable offset for curves would be useful, and if there was control of offset at a few places along the curve, even more useful.
