Hi Panos,

The transition curve terminology for Templot is explained on this page:

 http://templot.com/martweb/gs_geometry.htm#transition

It's an old page, but still mostly valid.

The 4 basic settings are:

first (1st) initial radius
second (2nd) final radius

length of the 1st radius section
length of the transition zone section

There are mouse actions to adjust each of these.



What are you having trouble doing?

regards,

Martin.

thank you very much. I wouldn 't say trouble. Its that when I am trying to make a transition curve, templot asks me where on the template do I want the transition to be aligned. (1st or 2nd radius and sometimes depending on the curvature and / or the radius the transition is invalid.

Regards
