Defines the colors associated with the curvature of models. Curvature
is equal to the inverse of the radius of the curve (curvature = 1/radius).
By default, the greatest curvature is represented by red, and the least
curvature is represented by black. For example, if you display curvature
on a cube, all sides display as black. This is because the radii of flat
faces are infinite and the curvature is zero.
As the curvature increases (and the radius decreases), the corresponding
color values change from black, through blue, green, and red.
You can change the curvature values at both ends of the scale and at
three points in the middle so that the curvature values increment within
a narrower or wider range, or increment more or less rapidly.
To set the curvature values:
on the Standard toolbar, or click Tools,
Document Properties tab, click
Select the curvature value edit boxes that you
want to change and enter new values. You can modify the values at five
intervals on the color scale; values are interpolated for the intermediate
colors in the range. See sample of
for some common radius values.
to preview the color scale changes with the new values. The intermediate
curvature values also change appropriately.
Click OK twice.
