    Spline on Suface Constraining

    Joseph Cicero

      I am looking to draw a spline of minimum length on a surface with 2 endpoints, where the length of the spline is at the minimum (shortest distance between two points on a surface).  Is there any way to do this?  I'm running SW2014.

       

      Thanks,
      Joe

          Hey Joe

           

          have you got a picture ?

           

          the way I would try it, would be to use a 2d sketch through the two end points and then use that for a split face, then go over that with a 3d sketch and use the convert entities tools, you can then use fit spline to turn that into a spline.

           

          iv done an example below if that helps.
