  1. On the Draw toolbar, click Curve

  2. Do one of the following:

    • To draw an open curve, set the Curve Type box on the ribbon to Open.

    • To draw a closed curve, set the Curve Type box on the ribbon to Closed.

  3. Click three or more points on the drawing sheet. These points represent nodes on the curve.

    You must place at least three points to draw a curve.

  4. Right-click to end the curve.

  • You can drag the pointer to draw the shape of a curve. Instead of clicking several different points to draw a curve, you can draw a diagonal line and the software automatically changes it to a curve.

  • The nodes at the start point and end point of a curve are always smooth.

  • You can use Insert Node on the shortcut menu to add nodes to a curve.

  • You can use Delete Node on the shortcut menu to delete nodes from a curve.

  • You can use the options on the ribbon and the commands on the shortcut menu to edit a curve.
