Location: Create>Point>Distance Interval

Use this feature to create a series of points at a specified linear distance on a curve. When using this function, keep the following in mind:

  • The end point closest to the selection point is the first point on the specified curve.

  • If the length of the curve is not an exact multiple of the specified distance, a point at the other end of the curve will not be created.

  • Regardless of the 2D/3D setting, this option always creates the specified points on the selected curve.

  • To improve accuracy when creating a large number of points on a curve, break the curve into segments, and then break each of the segments down individually.

Using the Function:

  1. Select Distance Interval from the Create>Point submenu.

  2. Enter the distance between points.

  3. Select the curve near the end to measure the distance from.
