Change Degree

The ChangeDegree command changes the degree of the polynomial that defines the curve or surface by adding or subtracting control points between knot spans, while maintaining the knot structure.

Steps

  1. Select the objects.
  2. Type a degree value.
    For surfaces type values in the u and v directions.
Command-line options

Deformable

Yes

If the degree of the curve/surface is different from the requested degree, the new curve/surface will have simple interior knots.

No

If the degree of the curve/surface is LESS than the requested degree, the new curve/surface will have exactly the same geometry and parameterization as the original, but it will have knots of multiplicity = old multiplicity + new degree - old degree.

If the degree of the curve/surface is GREATER than the requested degree, the new curve/surface will be an approximation of the original with simple knots.

SubCrv

Type subcrv to select part of a curve as input.
