From Curve

This option lets you select a line or curve of the main panel and sampling it as observation points. Before clicking on the "Add" button having selected the "From Curve" type, the curve has to be selected in the Geometry panel. As shown in the below figure, the following parameters are required:

  • Name to define the name of this type of observation points. The name must be different of the already defined ones.
  • Number of points to specify the number of samples generated along the curve.

Click on the "OK" button to insert the observation points from the curve, or abort the insertion by clicking on the "Cancel" button.

Figure 1. The next figure shows that the grid points are added to the Observation points list, and represented together the geometry as a dotted grid.
