To Define a Curve's Formula

  1. Open the Curve by Formula dialog ( Drawing > Home > Placement > Create Curves split button).
  2. In the Curve field, key in the curve's name.
  3. Define the equations, finishing each with a semi-colon “;”.
  4. (Optional) Place a curve to test the equation.
  5. Save the equation.
    Note: Some mathematical knowledge is needed to define a new curve. A curve is defined by the parametric equations for the x, y, and z coordinates of the curve. These formulas give the value of the articular coordinate as a parameter “t” that is between zero and one (0.0 < t < 1.0). This is the standard parametric form of a curve described in mathematical text books.
