Curvature Continuous Splines

The radius of curvature and the vector (direction) match when you add an Equal Curvature PM_Equal_Curvature.gif relation between adjacent splines.

The splines are curvature continuous at the boundary.

  • The second spline is unconstrained.
  • The two splines share an endpoint.
