In the curve tab, the catenary command is used to create an arch from identified points. The command does this first by inputting your selected points whether it is single points or points divided on a line/curve into (A) and (B). The export side of the command requires a curve plug in to connect the points with a catenary curve: the graph of the hyperbolic cosine function.  This would probably be helpful when designating a continuous arch pattern lofted from a single curve or looking at the efficiency of a structure in tension verse compression.
