Create curve from an array of x,y,z values

Hey Everyone,

I'm trying to create a single curve with CV's that are created by 3 arrays, one for X values, one for Y values, one for Z values.

Something like:

for x in range(1, len(flattenedListX)):

mc.curve( p=[flattenedListX, flattenedListY, flattenedListZ])

But this just seems to create several curves made up of 1 CV each (they are the little red squares). So can I create the curve outside of the loop, and then add the CV's inside the loop?

import pymel.core as pm xVal = [0,1,3,2] yVal = [0,2,3,2] zVal = [0,3,3,2] crvpoints = [] for i in range(len(xVal)): crvpoints.append((xVal[i], yVal[i], zVal[i])) pm.curve(p = crvpoints)
