Hi all,

I am trying to create (draw in a sketch) a simple parabola that follows the equation y=a*x^2, where the a is a defined parameter that the user can change. I was looking into the conic curve tool and it seems like such can be accomplished but I am not too sure how.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can create such a parabola without having to use external scripts?

Best,

Jo

Hi! At the moment, Fusion does not have a native workflow to generate an equation-driven curve. Here are a few ways to do that using scripts. Please take a look.

Many thanks!

@johnsonshiue thank you very much for your reply.

I do understand that Fusion does not have the native workflow for equations. But I thought that there is a way how to tailor a conic curve with a rho value of 0.5, which from my understanding makes the curve a parabola for a y= a * x^2

Yeah maybe. So you say 1/.5 = an exponent of 2.

Then if you would fit the end points

of (0,0) and (1,1). You could calculate a.

and there you go a work around. Ill try that.
