Curve Maker

Draw Spirals and Curves

Curve Maker draws the following spirals and curves in SketchUp®:

  • Archimedes spiral

  • Bernoulli (logarithmic or equiangular) spiral

  • Catenary

  • Cornu spline

  • Cotes spiral

  • Euler (clothoide or Cornu) spiral

  • Fermat spiral

  • Golden spiral

  • Helix

  • Hyperbolic cotangent spiral

  • Hyperbolic spiral

  • Hyperbolic tangent spiral

  • Ionic Volute

  • Lituus (shepherd's crook or bishop's crook)

  • Parabola

  • Sine and cosine

  • Superellipses

Curve Maker provides three ways to draw a curve:

  • interactively,

  • by specifying the dimensions a curve should have, or

  • by specifying values for parameters in mathematical equations. (You do not need to know any mathematical formulas.)

Drawing Curves Interactively

The following brief videos demonstrate some of the interactive curve drawing capabilities of Curve Maker:
