So I have a series of fully defined curves and I would like to add a point that can move along these curves based on a driving path length dimension.
How can I achieve this within a sketch?
Could you provide a sketch or a picture of what your trying to do??
Create another sketch and select Fit Spline:
Select all the curves from your original sketch:
Exit the sketch
Hide your original sketch leaving only the fit spline showing.
Add a third sketch and create a single line inside that third sketch and add a dimension to the length of that line.
Create a reference point and then select the fit spline near the end that you want the distance measured from:
Give it an arbitrary distance.
Hit manage equations and select Dimension View:
Make your point distance equal to the line length dimension:
Now your point distance is equal to your line length.
Want to change your point location....change the line length.
If you have Instant3D turned on, then you can select the little blue ball at the end of the dimension and have your reference point move with it.
