# How do I make edges on a curve have equal length while maintaining the rough shape of the curve?

So I'm trying to make a cylinder that has faces with equal dimensions, and I already have a cylinder that has the exact curve I want to use. How can I make a new curve with equal edge lengths while maintaining the rough shape of the curve I have already created? The cylinder and curve I created are in the image linked. As you can see, the edges and faces do not have the same length.

• I don't understand what you are asking, I see no curve in your screenshot, and your "cylinder" is not really a true cylinder. What curve and wat edges specifically are you talking about? Could you please edit your question and clarify Commented Mar 20, 2017 at 17:53
• Can I try to reformulate: you want to keep the overall slice shape but make so all edges of this slice, around the cylinder, have the same length.Is that it? Commented Mar 20, 2017 at 18:38
• Since there has been some confusion, I'll clarify that the curve I am referring to is the curve of the top of the pillar (the circle-ish curve), and the edges that I am referring to are the ones that make up this curve. Also, lemon, to answer your question, yes.

• I/ve been pondering this question, and need some more information before venturing an answer. How much tolerance is there for variation from the shape of the curve, because it appears to me that due to the compound nature of the curve, it may be a challenge to match the curve. Second, how large do you want the segments of the curve to be? If you want to match the dimensions of the larger segments, you probably cannot keep the shape you want; if you are willing to match the smaller segments, you may be able to more nearly approximate the desired shape, at the cost of more geometry.
