I'm using parameters in curve equation, and it works with one
restrictions. If I change the parameter by SETUP#PARAMETERS#MODIFY, the
normal REGENERATE doesn't work. I have to do INFO#REGENT
INFO#BEGINNING#QUIT to update the curve.

Perhaps you can have your abs() connected to a parameter in relations
and the parameter in the curve equation.


1. Creating absolute values when constructing a datum curve from equation


Is there a way to create absolute values when creating a datum curve
from equation? I would like to enter something similar to these two
equations, but I can't since I'm unable to create absolute values....
I'm using Pro/E 2001. Thanks for your help.
