Equation – curves in SpaceClaim

    • l.janicek

      Hi, I have curve with definition:

      X equation    
      - (29 - 23 * cos(u * pi / 6 - 0.0183)) * cos(u * pi * 8)
      Y equation    
      - (29 - 23 * cos(u * pi / 6 - 0.0183)) * sin(u * pi * 8)
      Z equation    
      - 23 * sin(u * pi / 6 - 0.0183)

      U Min -1, U Max 1, Step 1024    


      I tried to set the equation (I tried other variable settings as well) in the Spaceclaim - Equation in curves, but without success.


      In the attachment is a screenshots from Spaceclaim and software Blender, where is everything OK.


      Could you help me with the issue?


      Thank you, Lukas

      Hello Lukas

      I used the 'Helix' equation to modify and create a custom equation to accommodate yours.

      I used parameters in place of common terms such as '23 * cos(u * pi / 6 - 0.0183) ' which is found repeatedly in your equations.

      This way you have the flexibility to easily modify the values of the parameters and make the equation less complicated.

      Here is an image of the outcome.


      I have also attached the XML document with the saved equation.

      You can try copy-pasting this in the below location and then start SpaceClaim to directly access it in the Equations list.



      Please let me know if this solution helps or if there is anything else you're looking for.
