    best practice for creating a spline or two

      *see attached pic*


      if you grab the top most point and rotate the part, I need to create a spline of the path that it makes.

      I have 2 splines (one for each point) that I did manually by rotating it every 18 degrees, but the spline isn't good enough.

      Is there any way to create the spline just by dragging the points around, or do I have to just go nutty and make it rotate every couple degrees, create a point, then create a spline with the 150 or so points I create?

      I hope there is a quick way to do this. or at least something better than manually creating a bunch of points.

      attached is a pic, and sketch.. just change the .zip extension to sldprt.. Thanks
