Learn how to create and control an equation driven spline in this video.
- [Instructor] When trying to create…very specific driven curves in SolidWorks,…sometimes you want to use the equation driven curve.…This gives you the ability to use medical equation…or relationship to drive the feature of a curve.…This is similar to what you do, plotting it in Excel…or using a software like MATLAB or Mathematica.…So I'm going to go up to the spline tab…and hit equation driven curve.…Now the explicit is what we use for the 2D curves…and the parametric is more for defining…more complex geometry with more parameters…and usually used to make a 3D representation.…
But for this example,…we're going to focus on the explicit version.…Pretty simply, you're just going to put in some parameters…for your change of x over a certain time,…so I'm going to start with X1 being 0…and X2 being 50 and I'm going to say…that Y equals X plus 50.…Now if I hit Return and zoom out a little bit,…we can see here that I've got a preview of a curve.…X goes from zero to 50…and Y goes from 50 up to 100.…
Now we can change this…
