Sample text

One more important controlling characteristic of B-splines is the weights associated with each control point. Weights basically indicate how much a control point affects each span of the curve. A simple B-spline is one where all the weights are the same, so the control points each affect the curve with the same intensity or uniformity. Thus, it is uniform and non-rational. 4). 4 A NURBS curve. Creating and Modifying Curves To make a curve, you can add a curve that is already drawn and then edit it, draw it freehand, or draw in the control points by yourself.

You can also move the control points of the curve to change its shape. In order to refine your curve, or give you the ability to add more detail to it, you will have to insert a point. Usually this is accomplished by selecting an insert task, and then clicking on the curve or polyline where you want it. Sometimes, this will be called insert knot. Inserting a knot is not exactly inserting a control point or vector; however, the number of knots is equal to the degree of the curve plus the number of control points.

Draw a polygon tracing the main body, using only four vertices. Don't worry that it doesn't match the beveled corners exactly. That will come later. Put your vertices a bit outside the bevels, as smoothing will pull surfaces inward. Select the polygon's face and extrude it in the front view. It will be starting from the center. Pull it to the farthest edge of the main body. With box modeling, you will create a cube, with one face on the side view plane. Then, still in the side view, select the vertices at the corners and move them in to match.
