SolidWorks 2014 – Style Spline

by Charles Culp, SWtuts.com

An introduction to Style Spline, a new feature in SolidWorks 2014.

The style spline uses Bezier curves, while the existing spline tool uses b-spline curves. This allows for easier control of the shape and always creates smooth curves. These splines are mathematically more simple, so a complex tool is inherently less powerful, but the style spline is likely to become my spline sketching tool of choice.
