parallel splines

Hi there. I'm using fixed point splines to make a curved trough & want to make the segments between the spline points parallel to another such adjacent segment, to be selected.

Firstly. Am I approaching this the wrong way?

Secondly. If no, how can I select just the spline segment between the adjacent points as it seems to select the whole spline. Including the return.

Thirdly. I assume that once i achieve the second point then that the parallel tool will work on it.

 

Kindest regards 

Colin

To achieve your layout, I think if may be easier to sketch a center line splice and then offset it twice, one to each side.  This will give you a spline sides that are all parallel from the beginning.  I may be missing your objective but from what I see and read this is what you want to do.

Thanks for that. It looks like what I'm looking for. Now I just need to learn that process. Have you got any good reference tutorials?

I am not sure what you need besides the basic sketch commands.  I have added a video of what I did, maybe it will help.  If you need good tutorials to start learning Fusion 360 in general, the self guided tutorials are a good place.

Thanks heaps. I find myself very pressed for time as a full-time carer & the only designer for our Men's Shed. So the only time I get to tackle any of this, & other issues, is when my care is asleep.

Muchly appreciated.

Thin Feature (Extrude) and Full Round Fillets might be another option to simplify the workload.
