CurvePointAtLength Method
Rhino for Mac 5.1
Gets a point at a certain length along the curve. The length must be non-negative and less than or equal to the length of the curve. Lengths will not be wrapped when the curve is closed or periodic.

Namespace: Rhino.Geometry
Assembly: RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll) Version: 5.1.50000.0 (5.0.20693.0)
public Point3d PointAtLength(
	double length


Type: SystemDouble
Length along the curve between the start point and the returned point.

Return Value

Type: Point3d
Point on the curve at the specified length from the start point or Poin3d.Unset on failure.
