User question:

Is it possible to have an equivalent to the function "Equidistant" for the BSpline as we have for the Polyline (or a way of obtaining the same results)?

There is no tool to create an equidistant spline entity.

You can produce a similar effect by converting the spline into a polyline and using the polyline equidistant tool:
  • Copy the original spline entity for future reference as it will be destroyed in the process.

    Explode the spline:
    • Select the spline
      Choose "Modify - Explode"
      The spline has been exploded into small line segments
    Convert the loose segments into a polyline:
    • Choose "Draw - Polyline - Create from Segments"
      Click one of the exploded spline segments
      The spline is now represented as a polyline
    Use the equidistant polyline tool to create an equidistant polyline
Note that this is not an exact equivalent of an equidistant spline, but it might suffice for some purposes.
