Adding Curves

 
 
 

Add fixed, free, or floating curves to build constraint-based alignment geometry for the areas of your design that require maintaining tangency.

After clicking a button on the Alignment Layout Tools toolbar, follow the command prompts on the command line.

Tip

You can use transparent commands when you are prompted to specify direction, radius, or length, or use station offsets to specify any points. For more information, see Transparent Commands.

Tutorial Exercise: Adding Floating Curves to an Alignment

  • Adding Fixed Curves

    Add a fixed curve through three specified pass-through points.

  • Adding Floating Curves

    Add floating curves to build constraint-based alignment geometry for the areas of your design that require maintaining tangency.

  • Adding Free Curves

    Add free curves to build constraint-based alignment geometry for the areas of your design that require maintaining tangency.
