Divide a curve into several independent curves.

  1. On the ribbon, click the Curves tab.
  2. Click the Divide icon.

  3. Click a curve to select it.
    Note: Double-click the curve to edit.
  4. To add division points, you can do one of the following:
    • Click the curve.
    • In the Control Panel, enter the Number of Curves you'd like to create from the division. If you would like the division points to be distributed evenly, select Uniform Division.
  5. To reposition a division point, do one of the following:
    • Drag the point.
      Note: Two snaps are automatically enabled when you are picking division points: a red circle appears when you snap to a midpoint, and a red cross appears when you snap to the endpoint of a segment.
    • Click the point, and then enter a Current Length or Current U in the Control Panel.
      Note: The Current Length is the distance between the start point of the original curve and a selected division point. For example, if the Curve Length is 10 cm and the Current Length is 5 cm, the curve will be divided in half.

      The Current U is the ratio of the Current Length to the Curve Length. For example, if you want to divide the curve in half, enter a value of 0.5 for U Position.

  6. Right-click and mouse through the check mark to exit, or double-right-click.
