    Question Divided path - horizontal distance

    Hi there,

    I need make a sheet pile family en I want to use a spline which I want to make a divided path.
    The sheet pile has a flexible height with the bottom en top changing heights so I want to use 2 reference lines (bottom and top).
    When I make the reference line a divided path and set up the fixed distance, the distance measures between the points directly, like in a horizontal and vertical direction combined.

    This is not how I want the measurement. I need to set up only a horizontal distance which means the direct distance between the points won't be like in the set up.
    I added two sketches of what I mean: the points have to be like the second example, on the intersection between the purple and red lines.

    Does anyone recognize this issue and knows a solution?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Looks like Divided Path is not the tool for this task, because a divided path creates segments of equal length. In this case, I think each segment of curve between one vertical line and the next has a different length.

    Try this: draw those lines as reference planes. Host reference points on the spline. Then select each point and use "host point by intersection" then select a vertical reference plane. Now the point is under control. If the reference plane moves, the point will move. Once you have a skeleton of points under control, you can build the rest of the geometry.
