Curve Through XYZ Points

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

ParameterTypeDescription
File NameString

The full file path, name and extension of the file containing the XYZ coordinates of the curve.

Load the points of the free-point curve from a *.sldcrv or * .txt file.

Example .txt File

The file being imported has each x,y, z value separated with a space. Each point must be on a new row.

A header row is not required. Specifying units for each value is optional.

For example the text file below will create a Curve through the three points specified.
