2D curve : definition (structure)


The entity 2D curve ( path/ I/O parameter ) is defined by:

  • a name and a comment (optional)
  • a quantity on the abscissa:
    • a path (2D curve : path)
    • a variable quantity (2D curve : I/O parameter)
  • One or more quantities on the ordinates


The user gives the name permitting the identification of the 2D curve during its creation.

A comment (optional) can be added to the name.
