Split Curve

Used to split a B-spline curve into a defined number of sections by any one of three methods.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Modeling > Curves > Modify Curves
  • Toolbox: Modify B-spline Curves

Split Method Defines the way that the curve is split.
  • By Numbers — Splits the curve into equal arc lengths.
  • At Kink Points — Splits the curve at all sharp or cusp points. If no kink points are found, the curve is not split.
  • Into Beziers — Splits the curve into its Bezier segment curves.
  • By Parameter — Locates the split based on the curve value location. Value:
Number of Splits (Method set to By Numbers) Input the number of segments.
Value (Method set to By Parameter) This is a number greater than 0 and less than 1. Zero and 1 are the endpoints of the curve by definition.
