Rational Bezier curves are one of the most important computer graphics for the computeraided geometric design (CAGD). This paper presents certain metric properties of a spacelike rational Bezier curve with timelike principal normal in Minkowski 3space. First, the Bezier curve is defined in Minkowski space. Then, SerretFrenet frames, the curvatures, and the torsions of the curve are obtained for each spacelike condition. Finally, the derivative formulas of the curve are calculated, and a numerical example is given.
