Ellipse Approximation Issues.

Issue #746 invalid
Keith Olson created an issue

Did a test to see how to use Bezier curves to approximate a circle/ellipse (using information from this page, and discovered that at higher ratios, an ellipse has... problems. Adjust the length of 'Line_C2_C3' in the attached file to see what I mean. (FWIW, to automatically adjust the control points of a BC, you just need to multiply the appropriate radius by 0.551915024494, as seen in the options for the bezier curve in the example I provided.) The position of C2 can also be changed to show off-center curves.

Hope this helps!

    Could you please make the curve setup I've created be the default for a three-point 'Curved Path'? One advantage is that the two ends of the curve are at ninety degrees to the base line, which would make things like armholes flow smoothly.)

    I cannot open your file because you did not provide file with measurements 'Tutorial - Panties.vit'.

    That's totally okay. We provide two ways to create an arc and one way to create an elliptic arc. Using bezier curve also possible, but much more harder way.
