Clean and efficient curves are critical to the successful construction of surfaces and solids. There are few simple checks you can do to avoid some of the common beginner mistakes.
- [Instructor] In this video,…we review common curve problems…that can be silent and deadly to your modeling process.…I've got three similar looking,…but completely different curves here…made with the control point curve.…All of them have slightly different problems…that we will identify and then fix.…Let's start with problem number one.…But before I do too much analysis,…let's just mention that all of these problems…will be typically invisible,…especially to the first time user.…
But they're all very simple to avoid if you're careful.…A lot of these are made by beginners as I mentioned,…or it can happen from imported geometry.…Now if these problems aren't fixed early,…it can only get worse,…especially when you build surfaces from a curve.…So the goal here is we're going to learn…to spot the problems early and then fix them.…Okay, I'm going to zoom out so we can see the first curve.…The problem being too many control points.…So I can use the control points over here…or F10 is the shortcut.…
And you can see there's a lot more points…

Q: Why can't I earn a Certificate of Completion for this course?
A: We publish a new tutorial or tutorials for this course on a regular basis. We are unable to offer a Certificate of Completion because it is an ever-evolving course that is not designed to be completed. Check back often for new movies.
