So, we can highlight the differences and end up with the one Freeform Curve you should be using whenever possible, the Control Point curve. However, before we start, just a reminder on the importance of Freeform curves. Their construction and editing are essentially the foundation of 3D N.U.R.B.S modeling. When you build a clean curve, you get clean surfaces. Let's start off by going to the Curve menu. We have a Freeform, and here's the four varieties.

I'll start off with Sketch. Then we have the Handle Curve, Interpolate Points and the Control Point Curve. Let's do the Sketch first. Now, we have to click and drag. We don't have a lot of accuracy here. It's random almost. Then right-click when you are done. And so there is the Sketch curve. Let's, try the next Freeform curve, the Handle Curve.
