SplineWeights

SplineWeights

is an option for B-spline functions and graphics primitives that specifies weights of control points.

Details

  • SplineWeights->Automatic makes all weights equal, yielding polynomial splines.
  • With SplineWeights->array, each element of array gives the weight for the corresponding control point in the array of control points specified.

Basic Examples  (1)

Here all weights are equal:

This uses a larger weight for the third control point:
