Draw line from locus?

Recommended Posts

I have to draw a polyline from many locus point (around 4500). Is there a way to draw a line between multiple 3d locus automaticly?

Are you aware of a script that would do that?

Thank you

Nobody? I've wanted this function on several occasions. But I see some problems:

Where is the start, the end? User defines with clicks? Closed loop?

In what order shall the points be connected? Shortest path? Angle or radius limit?

If making a NURBS curve through the points, can some be left out if they are way off?

But there should be many situations where this idea could be applied.

If the loci were placed in the order they are to be connected, then it is a simple exercise to step through the stacking order and connect them with a script. If they were randomly placed then the algorithm needs a bit more refinement.

It's an interesting problem.

Can you give us more information about the loci and

the lines?
