This command creates
a dependent point at the intersection of two curves.
To create a dependent curve-curve point:
- In the NURBS toolbox, turn on (Create Curve-Curve Point).
- Drag from the first curve to the second
If the curves do not
intersect, the point is orange, an invalid dependent point.
The point is created
at the nearest intersection between the two curves. You can use
the curve-curve parameters to trim the parent curves.
- Right-click to end the create operation.
While a curve-curve point
sub-object is selected, the Curve-Curve Intersection rollout appears.
Trim First Curve and Trim
Second Curve groups
These two groups let
you control how the parent curves are trimmed. The controls are
the same in each. "First" and "second" refer to the order in which
you picked the parent curves.
- Trim Curve
When on, the parent curve
is trimmed against the curve-curve point. When off (the default),
the parent isn't trimmed.
- Flip Trim
When on, trims in the opposite direction.
- Seed 1 and Seed 2
Change the U location
of the seed value on the first and second curves. If there is a
choice of intersections, the intersection closest to the seed points
is the one used to create the point.
- Replace First Curve and Replace Second Curve
(Only at modification time.)
Let you replace the parent curves. Click a button, then click the
curve to replace the original first or second curve.
