Curve to match mathematical function
on Oct 4, 2013 at 12:06:41 pm

Hello all,

Is there a way to plug in a mathematical function (exponential) and create a curve?


Second question, if I'm not abusing my privilege to ask these... Is there a way to apply a point to a curve with a measured distance along the curve? Obviously, I can Show>Rulers and measure the linear distance of the curve, but I need to calculate the length of the curve including bends in the curve. Example: I need to apply a point 10mm's along a twisty and windy curve.

Scriptographer used to be the way to go, but that hasn't been updated in a while.

With a light-hearted search (draw math functions) in Google, I found this:

You could take a screen shot of it and trace it in Illustrator. There are loads of tools out there, many free, you can use to create curves, then trace in Illustrator.

Save early. Save often.
