C-freezer was a crucial tool for me... enabled you to reparameterize a curve....

but alas, it last worked for version 7 or 8. does not work at all for the latest version 9.6.

so i had to find a way to cheat it-

take your curve, create an offset of the curve (i use lw cad but you can just scale it so that it is approximately offset).

connect the two curves with two more curves so that you have 4 crossing curves.

PATCH IT with your last curve selection being one of the connecting curves.

now you can use the PARALLEL and LENGTH checkboxes in the patch to reparameterize your curve.

what you will get is a poly surface but just kill the polys and the edge that conforms with your original curve is now reparameterized with the number of verts you specified in how many parallel sections you wanted in the patch.



if anyone has a better way or an updated version of c-freezer, let me know.

otherwise, this is doable.

Or select the first point in your spline.
Copy/paste it into another layer and make it a single point poly.
Now rail extrude it using your original spline.
This will create a chain of 2 pt polys.
Those can be reselected using select loop
and made into a new spline if needed.
