    Curve Smooth Definition

    Nurul Aziz

      In Catia there is a command 'Curve Smooth Definition'...

      Does Solidworks have something similar to this?

      If Yes, what is it?

      I tried using Composite Curve...yes it smoothens the curve...but when i want to extrude, etc it cant be used..

      Please help me...

      Thank You...

          Welcome to SW forums Nurul.


          It's called Fit Spline

            It depends what CATIA product - Image and Shape, Freestyle Shaper or ICEM?  In ICEM it is the Approximation Tab. Deepak is correct in that the Fit spline does roughly the same thing but also "Simplify Spline" will also do this by eliminating knots from the spline - thereby smoothing it. Sounds like you are trying to use a series of connected curves and/or sketches to extrude. Perhaps showing a screen shot would clarify things. Extrude won't extrude if the profile is not closed - is this the case? Perhaps composite curve segments are not connected?
