      Hello everyone,

      As the title may indicate, I’m using the older, precursor FREE!Ship software. As I’m currently engaged in using it for a project, I don’t really want to procure the free version of DELFTship at this time.

      In any sense, after reading through the manual, I cannot figure out how to display the curvature plot of a control curve on any of the viewports. I’d really like to know how to make use of this feature so I can properly smooth and form the geometry I’m working on. If someone can help with this issue, it would be most appreciated.

      Double post for clarification…

      It seems that after selecting the curve, the curve-change ratio is indeed marked on the curve. However, the change is so small that it cannot easily be seen – at all! Curiosity from this point onwards is a bit anal-retentive, but I’d like to develop the best possible shape I can with the tools at hand.

      That said, now that I’ve indeed verified that the curve is present, is there a way to increase the amplitude of the curve so that it can better be seen and thus adjusted?


      Very, very sorry for posting this, but the feature just wasn’t well documented (at least as far as I read in the version 2.6 manual); the curvature scale could be adjusted with the F9 and F10 keys. Thus, problem solved (for the time being).

      In any sense, thank you to anyone who bothered to at least read my posts, and happy new year.
