Why Bézier Curves Matter – The Style Spline in SOLIDWORKS – Part 2

bezier-curve-style-spline-2In Part 1 of this series we looked at how the Style Spline (Bézier curve) differs from the B-Spline and other curves that were already available in SolidWorks prior to 2014. Here are the main points as to why this curve is useful to a CAD user: Control, continuity, and quality.
