Specifying fit tolerance
By default, the spline passes through all of the control points. When you draw a spline, you can change this by specifying the fit tolerance. The fit tolerance value determines how closely the spline fits the set of points you specify. For example, a spline fit tolerance value of 0 causes the spline to pass through the control points. A value of 0.01 creates a spline that passes through the start and endpoints and within 0.01 units of the intermediate control points.
To specify the fit tolerance
- Do one of the following:
Specify the first point of the spline.
Specify the second point of the spline.
In the prompt box, choose Fit Tolerance.
To accept the default of 0.0000, press Enter.
- Choose Insert > Spline.
- On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Spline tool ().
- Type spline, and then press Enter.
To specify a different fit tolerance, type the number, and then press Enter.
Specify the additional points you need to draw a spline or a closed spline.
