Is it possible to draw a spline that smooths out to form flat tails/ends? I've spent hours trying to figure out where to place the points to form flat ends, but to no success.
Does anyone know?
As Krzysztof says, add a tangent relation between the line and the spline.
Here the line and the spline are selected but Tangent has not been selected.
Now the Tangent relation has been added.
Edited to point out that Krzysztof was posting while I was copying and pasting screenshots.
If you need a flat tails/ends why to not start with a line and add tangency to the spline?
I'm not sure if I completely understand. If I just join a line with the spline, then the curve wouldn't be continuous - right? That is, the joint will create a corner.
Now i'm not sure what you would like to achieve. What you mean with flat ends?
I mean, I'm hoping to have the tails/ends of the spline to be parallel to the axis. I think if the curve and a flat line are just constrained by 'coincident', the joint would create a corner. I'm hoping for the entire shape to be smooth, i.e. the curve gradually flattens.
Take a look on this...
In the example you show you can add a horizontal construction line at the end of the spline and make the spline tangential to it. That means that whatever the shape of the spline it will always end horizontally.
