Returns a geometrically equivalent PolyCurve.
The PolyCurve has the following properties 1. All the PolyCurve segments are LineCurve, PolylineCurve, ArcCurve, or NurbsCurve. 2. The Nurbs Curves segments do not have fully multiple interior knots. 3. Rational Nurbs curves do not have constant weights. 4. Any segment for which IsLinear() or IsArc() is true is a Line, Polyline segment, or an Arc. 5. Adjacent Colinear or Cocircular segments are combined. 6. Segments that meet with G1continuity have there ends tuned up so that they meet with G1continuity to within machine precision.  
SimplifyEnd 
Same as SimplifyCurve, but simplifies only the last two segments at "side" end.
 
Smooth(Double, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, SmoothingCoordinateSystem) 
Smooths a curve by averaging the positions of control points in a specified region.
 
Smooth(Double, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, Boolean, SmoothingCoordinateSystem, Plane)

SpanDomain 
Get the domain of the curve span with the given index.
Use the SpanCount property to test how many spans there are.
 
Split(IEnumerableDouble) 
Splits (divides) the curve at a series of specified parameters.
The parameter must be in the interior of the curve domain.
 
Split(Double)

TangentAt  Evaluates the unit tangent vector at a curve parameter.  
ToArcsAndLines 
Converts a curve into polycurve consisting of arc segments. Sections of the input curves that are nearly straight are converted to straightline segments.
 
ToNurbsCurve 
Constructs a NURBS curve representation of this curve.
 
ToNurbsCurve(Interval) 
Constructs a NURBS curve representation of this curve.
 
ToPolyline(Double, Double, Double, Double) 
Gets a polyline approximation of a curve.

Gets a polyline approximation of a curve.
 
ToPolyline(Int32, Int32, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Boolean, Interval) 
Gets a polyline approximation of a curve.
 
ToString  Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)  
Transform 
Transforms the geometry. If the input Transform has a SimilarityType of
OrientationReversing, you may want to consider flipping the transformed
geometry after calling this function when it makes sense. For example,
you may want to call Flip() on a Brep after transforming it.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)  
Translate(Vector3d)  Translates the object along the specified vector. (Inherited from GeometryBase.)  
Translate(Double, Double, Double)  Translates the object along the specified vector. (Inherited from GeometryBase.)  
Trim(Interval) 
Removes portions of the curve outside the specified interval.
 
Trim(Double, Double) 
Removes portions of the curve outside the specified interval.
 
Trim(CurveEnd, Double) 
Shortens a curve by a given length

Several types of Curve can have the form of a polyline
including a degree 1 NurbsCurve, a PolylineCurve,
and a PolyCurve all of whose segments are some form of
polyline. IsPolyline tests a curve to see if it can be
represented as a polyline.
