Hey guys,

Simple (hopefully) question:

I'm using a bezier curve to trace out a shape from an image plane. From there, I want to duplicate and mirror the curve (since, in the reference, I can only see half the shape anyway), combine the two, and close it off so the entire shape is one, connected curve.

I can't figure out how to fully close the curve off though, and still have a part where there are two CVs just directly on top of one another.

Here's the process I did to get to where I am now, if it helps:

1) trace half the shape using bezier curves

2) Snap the first and last points of the shape to a grid line, so they share the same X coordinate

3) duplicate the curve, and invert the duplicate by changing scale X to -1

4) apply "reverse curve" on the duplicate

5) select both curves, apply "attach curves"

This ends up joining the bottom two points, but not the top two.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've attached an image of the situation. The top point is where the curve is not connected.

On a side note: am I even using the right term (close)? I've read about open, closed, and periodic curves...not sure which one I'm trying to make, lol. The idea is to have no gaps.

Thanks! =D
