Analysis/Curve/Control Points

Control points are the points on a curve or surface that identify intersections or changes in inflection. In this example, I drew a curve in 3d and linked it to the control point command in Grasshopper. Grasshopper then identified the control points with x’s. After you identify and can select the control points, you can control them through moving, translating, copying, etc which will then change the inflection/intersection of the curves. I copied and moved the points on the y axis; I also moved individual points, which are reflected in the copied versions.

Here is the grasshopper file: control_points
