I am trying to draw a sleeve pattern with pitch points specified in the instructions like this.
For this type of curves, is it possible to draw one arc with an additional point in the centre to control the curves? I ended up drawing two curves instead but I find that the curve is not “natural” since it is manually adjusted.
If it is possible to draw this curve accurately using the proper curve tool, please tell me which one I should be using.
I also noticed there is an option dialog that pops up when drawing curves. I tried playing with the settings but could not get the curve to meet the pitch points properly without using the handles. What do the settings Length ratio, angle and coefficient of curvature mean?
Thank you so much for helping this newbie
