Spline(bpy_struct)

base class — bpy_struct

class bpy.types.Spline(bpy_struct)

Element of a curve, either NURBS, Bézier or Polyline or a character with text objects

bezier_points

Collection of points for Bézier curves only

Type:

SplineBezierPoints bpy_prop_collection of BezierSplinePoint, (readonly)

character_index

Location of this character in the text data (only for text curves)

Type:

int in [0, inf], default 0, (readonly)

hide

Hide this curve in Edit mode

Type:

boolean, default False

material_index

Material slot index of this curve

Type:

int in [0, 32767], default 0

order_u

NURBS order in the U direction. Higher values make each point influence a greater area, but have worse performance

Type:

int in [2, 64], default 0

order_v

NURBS order in the V direction. Higher values make each point influence a greater area, but have worse performance

Type:

int in [2, 64], default 0

point_count_u

Total number points for the curve or surface in the U direction

Type:

int in [0, inf], default 0, (readonly)

point_count_v

Total number points for the surface on the V direction

Type:

int in [0, inf], default 0, (readonly)

points

Collection of points that make up this poly or nurbs spline

Type:

SplinePoints bpy_prop_collection of SplinePoint, (readonly)

radius_interpolation

The type of radius interpolation for Bézier curves

Type:

enum in [‘LINEAR’, ‘CARDINAL’, ‘BSPLINE’, ‘EASE’], default ‘LINEAR’

resolution_u

Curve or Surface subdivisions per segment

Type:

int in [1, 1024], default 0

resolution_v

Surface subdivisions per segment

Type:

int in [1, 1024], default 0

tilt_interpolation

The type of tilt interpolation for 3D, Bézier curves

Type:

enum in [‘LINEAR’, ‘CARDINAL’, ‘BSPLINE’, ‘EASE’], default ‘LINEAR’

type

The interpolation type for this curve element

Type:

enum in [‘POLY’, ‘BEZIER’, ‘NURBS’], default ‘POLY’

use_bezier_u

Make this nurbs curve or surface act like a Bézier spline in the U direction

Type:

boolean, default False

use_bezier_v

Make this nurbs surface act like a Bézier spline in the V direction

Type:

boolean, default False

use_cyclic_u

Make this curve or surface a closed loop in the U direction

Type:

boolean, default False

use_cyclic_v

Make this surface a closed loop in the V direction

Type:

boolean, default False

use_endpoint_u

Make this nurbs curve or surface meet the endpoints in the U direction

Type:

boolean, default False

use_endpoint_v

Make this nurbs surface meet the endpoints in the V direction

Type:

boolean, default False

use_smooth

Smooth the normals of the surface or beveled curve

Type:

boolean, default False

calc_length(resolution=0)

resolution (int in [0, 1024], (optional)) – Resolution, Spline resolution to be used, 0 defaults to the resolution_u

Returns:

Length, Length of the polygonaly approximated spline

Parameters:

direction (int in [0, 1]) – Direction, The direction where 0-1 maps to U-V

Returns:

Return value, The message or an empty string when there is no error

Return type:

string
