Is it possible to add a knot or node to a spline without it being flat on the workplane? Vr. 18.2
I created a spline rotated it 90deg, its on y,z instead of x,y and it won't allow me to add a knot or node. I made a copy of the spline rotated it back to the x,y and "place on work plane" and it allows the addition of a knot or node (add knot in edit fit points, add node in edit control points). So is it necessary for the spline to be flat on the current work plane or did I miss something?
Also, is it possible to mark where these Knot/nodes are for guide line placement or is it a guessing game?
I'm trying to do a loft, I have it to a basic shape now I want to fine tune it so to speak.
As it stands now I'm going to have to create a work plane at each profile and "place on work plane". <---Is this the better way to do originally?
I could always rotate the profiles back to the x,y make some reference lines and intersect snap the nodes to the lines and the original profiles. (I took the profile with the most nodes and copy/matched it up to the other profiles for consistant node count).
Maybe I should have used a 3D spline instead.
Uh-oh I think I'm thinking to much again
