Click to view contentSolidworks 2019 has this new feature called Generic Spline, which is something I've been awaiting for a long time. Apparently, the only way to create them in sketches right now is to Offset some other spline, delete the offset relation, and then edit that spline by selecting it. Problem is, in the link above, the pictured spline clearly has 3… (Show more)
