Full Version: Blend Curve Exact Length?

Hi OSTexo, the general mechanism of NURBS doesn't incorporate length as a driving input. It's more like curve length is a side effect from control point placement and a knot vector. So in general it's not easy to specify length for things like a freeform bendy curve like a blend would be. I don't know of any way to do that currently, it would probably require some kind of specialized iterative processing approach.

Hello,

Thank you for the explanation. It makes sense about the iterative sort of approach. Would the situation be different if there was a midpoint anchor? Thanks.

Hi OSTexo,

re:

I don't think that would make any difference as far as targeting a specific length result.
