Shortcut for spline manipulation
Hi there - I have a tedius task to do with modifying a large number of splines and I am wondering if anyone can help out with a better method than manually modifying each spline individually.
I have a spline that looks like this:
What I need to do is make an array and then adjust the length of the spine so that the ends form a circular pattern when viewed in plan view from above.
Partial scene of what I am trying to achive:
The best method I have so far is to simply move some of the vertices in plan view and line them manually with a circle line.....
However as you can imagine this is tedius in the extreme... can anyone suggest a better way of doing this?
I guess I am looking for a way to constrain selected vertices on multple splines to a circle.......

Maybe use an FFD on the verts with enough control points (?).

You could just model the overall mesh shape and generate spline contours on the surface :
..or multislice and create spline from edge :
