Hi all,
Is there any way to find the maximum curveture of a curve?

I don't know of any way to just find the maximum curvature. However, you might want to look at GeomLProp_CLProps.

Initialize the object with your curve, the degree (I believe 2 is good for curvature), and an acceptable tolerance. Then, use SetParameter to sweep through the parameter range of your curve at some increment and use Curvature to get the value at each increment.
