Subject: Specifying fit tolerance

By default, a spline passes through all of the control points. When you draw a spline, you can change this by specifying the fit tolerance. The fit tolerance value determines how closely the spline fits the set of points you specify. For example, a spline fit tol­erance value of 0 causes the spline to pass through the control points. A value of 0.01 creates a spline that passes through the start and endpoints and within 0.01 units of the intermediate control points.

To specify the fit tolerance

   1   Do one of the following to choose Spline ():

   On the ribbon, choose Draw > Spline.

   On the menu, choose Draw > Spline.

   On the Draw toolbar, click the Spline tool.

   Type spline and then press Enter.

   2   Specify the first point of the spline.

   3   Specify the second point of the spline.

   4   In the prompt box, choose Fit Tolerance.

   5   To accept the default of 0.0000, press Enter.

To specify a different fit tolerance, type the number, and then press Enter.

   6   Specify the additional points you need to draw a spline or a closed spline.
