Curve Stroke panel.

Type

Type of curve to use for drawing.

Poly:

Bézier Curve with straight line segments (auto handles).

Bézier:
Tolerance

Lower values give a result that is closer to the drawing stroke, while higher values give more smoothed results.

Method
Refit:

Incrementally refits the curve (gives best results).

Split:

Splits the curve until the tolerance is met (gives a better drawing performance).

Detect Corners

Detects corners while drawing based on a specified angle; Any angles above the specified value are considered corners. If a corner is detected, the curve uses non-aligned handles for the corner resulting in a more crisp corner.

Taper Start, End

Taper factor for the radius of the start and end points along the curve.

Radius Min

Minimum radius when the minimum pressure is applied (also the minimum when tapering).

Max

Radius to use when the maximum pressure is applied (or when a tablet is not used).

Use Pressure

Uses stylus pressure to control the radius of the curve.

Depth

Controls where and how the curves are drawn.

Cursor:

Uses the depth under the cursor to draw curves.

Surface:

Used to draw on top of other objects.

Offset

Distance to offset the curve from the surface.

Absolute Offset

Applies a fixed offset (does not scale by the curve radius).

Only First

Only uses the start of the stroke for the depth.

Plane

The orientation plane to draw on, available when Only First is enabled.

Normal to Surface:

Draws aligned to the surface.

Tangent to Surface:

Draws perpendicular to the surface.

Ansicht:

Draws aligned to the viewport.

Options

After the tool is run, these options are available in the Adjust Last Operation panel.

Error

Error distance in object units. This can be seen similar to a subdivision rate for the curve. Lower values give a result that is closer to the drawing stroke while higher values give more smoothed results.

Fit Method
Refit:

Incrementally refits the curve (gives best results).

Split:

Splits the curve until the tolerance is met (gives a better drawing performance).

Corner Angle

Any angles above this are considered corners.

Cyclic

Toggles whether or not the curve is Cyclic.
