Spline Points

The Insert Spline Point command adds one or more points to splines.

With spline points, you can:
  • Use spline points as handles to pull the spline into the shape you want.
  • Add dimensions between spline points or between spline points and other entities.
  • Add relations to spline points.

Inserting Spline Points

To insert spline points:

  1. In Edit Sketch mode, right-click a spline and select Insert Spline Point, or click Insert Spline Point Tool_Insert_Spline_Point_Spline_Tools.gif (Spline Tools toolbar).

    The pointer changes to Pointer_Insert_Spline_Point02.gif. If the pointer is not on the spline, the pointer changes to Pointer_Insert_Spline_Point01.gif.

  2. Click one or more places on the spline where you want to insert a point.
