Defining Smooth Geometric Constraints

Use the GcSmooth command to cause a Spline to constitute fluid geometric continuity with another Spline, Arc, Line, or PolyLine.

To define smooth Geometric Constraints:

  1. Click Constraints > Geometric Constraints > Smooth (or type GcSmooth).
  2. Specify a Spline entity.
  3. The constraint point displays at the start or end point of the Spline.
  4. Specify a second entity (Line, PolyLine, Arc, or another Spline).
  5. The primary Spline generates smooth continuity with the other entity.


Command: GcSmooth

Menu: Constraints > Geometric Constraints > Smooth
