Unfortunately we do not have a tool for sine wave generation inside Evolve. However, there is a work around, that although tedious, works.
Create a sine wave of any shape using a simple formula in excel
Export the co-ordinates to a text file (.txt)
Add the total rows as the first line and save the text file again
Import this text file into Evolve as a point cloud
Create a curve from points using 'Curve from point cloud' tool.
In the excel file attached I have used this example: Generate a 1Hz Sine Wave, with ω=2π and Amplitude 1. f = 1 Hz, ω = 2π, therefore, T=1 sec
The sine wave or sinusoid in its most basic form is: y(t) = A *sin(ωt+θ) Where: • A = Amplitude • ω=Angular frequency/ Circular frequency=2πf (rad/s) • f=1/T, where T=Period in seconds • θ=phase • t=time (s)
To edit the shape, please change the f value to the desired frequency.
Hope this helps you in some way. We will definitely be adding some tools to create parabolas, hyperbolas, sine and cosines in the near future.
