 June 30, 2012, 02:40 (Resolved) Pointwise - point distribution doubt #1 New Member   Join Date: Mar 2012 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 6 Hello all, I am new to Pointwise and I have a question regarding managing point distribution. Suppose I have a straight line along x-axis from x=0 to x=50 and I have a specific point distribution on it. Now suppose I have a curve between x=0 and x=50 above the x-axis and I have the same number of grid points (dimension) on it. I want to distribute the grid points on this curve in such a way that their x-location will match with that of the straight line, i.e., each line joining a point on straight line with that on the corresponding point on the curve will be parallel to the y-axis. I have tried "copy distribution from" function without much use. It matches point distribution in terms of distance from endpoints of a segment but that results in skewed grid lines wrto y-axis. If anyone can guide me to correct way of achieving this, I will really appreciate that. Thanks. Last edited by ni3d4888; June 30, 2012 at 15:13.
