Creating a point on the vertex of a curve

Hello,

I am curious if there is a method within Catia for locating the vertex of a curve. I have a need to create a spline that travels through the exact vertices of several similar parabolic curves. These parabolic curves are also asymmetrical (the curve extents are not equidistant from the vertex) so the curve midpoints do not exist as the vertices. Is anyone aware of a method, process, or tool within Catia to accomplish this?

Thank you!

Try the Extremum Point option located under the point pull/arrow down.
Choose your curve and direction, then Min or Max.
If you have more of a "S" shaped curve, it will only give you the one extremum point.
Another option would be to use "measure between" the curve to a surface or plane, then within the measure use the "create geometry".

Thank you! Worked Perfectly
