This class defines a dependent point that lies on a curve or relative to it. The point can either be on the curve or off the curve. If it is on the curve, the U Position is the only control of its location. The U Position specifies a location along the curve (based on the curve’s local U axis). There are four ways to specify the displacement of the point’s location relative to the U position:
OnObject - the point is actually on the surface of the object.
Offset - the point is moved according to a relative (object space) X,Y,Z location.
Normal - the point is moved along the direction of the curve’s normal. (Negative values move it opposite to the normal.)
Tangent - the point is moved along the tangent of the U Position. If the value is positive it's the tangent that heads in the direction of increasing U value; if negative it's the tangent that heads in the direction of decreasing U value.

Properties
The parent curve by NURBSet index.
The parent curve by NURBSId.
Parametric point along the parent curve.
Specifies the transform relationship between the point and the curve.
Offset vector if an offset type.
Distance along the normal if a normal type.
Distance along the curve tangent if a tangent type.
If true, trims parent curve at the point.
If true the curve is trimmed from the point towards low parameter space. If false the curve is trimmed from the point towards high parameter space.
