    Dimension Curvature at end of Spline

    Mark Matthews
      Don't know if this is possible in SW, but is there a way to get a dimension or measurement of the curvature at the end of a spline. I know you can do this in Pro-E, and also have a dimension drive the curvature at the end of a spline. A work around I can do is to create a dimensioned construction arc and use a curvature contraint to it, but this would also make a more complex spline.

          Mark,

          Actually, there is a way to do it other than the construction arc. It doesn't give you an on-screen dimension, but it works. Right click on the spline and select Add Curvature Control, and drag it to the end of the spline. When you select the control, the PropertyManager shows up, and there are two controls, one for Radius and the other for Curvature, one being the inverse of the other.

          You can dimension tangency and weighting handles, but not curvature handles.
