SplineClosed

SplineClosed
is an option for B-spline functions and graphics primitives that specifies whether spline curves or surfaces should be closed.

DetailsDetails

  • For curves, the setting SplineClosed->True makes the first and last points be connected smoothly.
  • For higher-dimension surfaces and manifolds, SplineClosed->True makes all boundaries be connected smoothly.
  • With the setting SplineClosed->True, all boundaries are connected smoothly.
  • With the setting SplineClosed->{c1,c2,}, the boundaries are connected in directions i for which is True.
