NurbsCurve.EvaluateNormalizedPosition

Returns a 3D vector containing the position, tangent vector in U direction, normal and bi-normal at a given normalized U value.

Object NurbsCurve.EvaluateNormalizedPosition( Double in_dUValueNormalized ); |

oArray = NurbsCurve.EvaluateNormalizedPosition( UValueNormalized ); |

A 1-dimensional Array containing the position, tangent vector, normal and bi-normal.

Parameter | Type | Description |
---|---|---|

UValueNormalized | Double | The normalized UValue(0.0 to 1.0) at which we want to evaluate the curve. |
