I am trying to place a co-ordinate system along a bspline curve. I need to use "by incremental distance along curve" as the spacing varies and I need to use "chord length" for my purposes. I am finding that if I use the "chord length" option I get an error saying the "curve must be planar", but if I use "by spacing along a curve" using "chord length" it works? this also occurs with points? these errors do not occur if I use the "arc length" option.
thanks Wayne, hey would you know when placing cells at CS points along a line, is there any short cut way to not include one? instead of having to add all the CS points that you do want included?
also would it help if I used a locale base CS so the model is closer to the base point?
Hi Wayne, I would really like to thank you for your help. I have one more problem and I was hoping you could steer me in the right direction, the incremental distance function, I need to place a vertical cell at the intersection of each line (by chaining), but it needs to be rotated at half the angle between the two lines. so if the angle is say 80 degrees between the two lines in need the cs point with an up vector of z rotated to 40 degrees?. the two lines are 3D lines and not in the same plane.

If you could start a new thread for a new topic that would help expose the question better. I can't quite understand what the question is asking but it sounds like you might be after a bisector? Attached is something that locates that location from one polyline segment to the next. It might help. If not start a new thread and we can take it from there.
