NX7.5.5 gets confused when chaining points to make a spline


New member
Hi all,

I have a cloud of points that actually represents 20 slices of an object. I don't feel like separating them into 20 .dat files and doing a through points spline, so I imported the cloud and am trying to spline each portion of what I see on the screen. Seems Insert, curve, spline, through points, chain from rectangle (rubber band them all), pick the start, pick the end...should work. But it gets confused because the points wrap back around to make almost a complete closed loop (an airfoil). So it splines 4 points near the picked start and end, rather than the 200 points.

Any "point"ers? :)

Thanks in advance,
