Curve

# CatmullRomCurve3

Create a smooth 3D spline curve from a series of points using the Catmull-Rom algorithm.

## Code Example

``` // create a closed wavey loop const curve = new v3d.CatmullRomCurve3([ new v3d.Vector3(-10, 0, 10), new v3d.Vector3(-5, 5, 5), new v3d.Vector3(0, 0, 0), new v3d.Vector3(5, -5, 5), new v3d.Vector3(10, 0, 10) ]); const points = curve.getPoints(50); const geometry = new v3d.BufferGeometry().setFromPoints(points); const material = new v3d.LineBasicMaterial({ color: 0xff0000 }); // create the final object to add to the scene const curveObject = new v3d.Line(geometry, material); ```

## Constructor

### CatmullRomCurve3(points : Array, closed : Boolean, curveType : String, tension : Float)

points – An array of Vector3 points
closed – Whether the curve is closed. Default is `false`.
curveType – Type of the curve. Default is `"centripetal"`.
tension – Tension of the curve. Default is `0.5`.

## Properties

See the base Curve class for common properties.

### # .points : Array

The array of Vector3 points that define the curve. It needs at least two entries.

### # .closed : Boolean

The curve will loop back onto itself when this is true.

### # .curveType : String

Possible values are `"centripetal"`, `"chordal"`, and `"catmullrom"`.

### # .tension : Float

When .curveType is `"catmullrom"`, defines catmullrom's tension.

## Methods
