3.7.1.4. Center Circular Arc Element

Description

An element representing a circular arc defined by two points (center and start) and an angle.

Parameters

Label – A unique name that identifies the element. (IElement/Label)

Visible - If True, element is visible in the sketch. (IElement/Visible)

Construction Only - If True, element is excluded from the covering process and does not become part of the geometry. Such elements are used in constructing other elements. (IElement/Construction)

Center - [LENGTH] – Center location of the arc defined in the sketch's coordinate system. (IPoint/Location)

Start - [LENGTH] - Start location of the arc defined in the sketch's coordinate system. (IPoint/Location)

Angle - [PHASE] - Angular extent of the arc measured counter clockwise from the start point. (ICenterCircularArc/Angle)

Counterclockwise - If True, the direction of the arc is counter clockwise. (ICenterCircularArc/Counterclockwise)

Evaluated Locations/Center - [LENGTH] – Post-operation center location of the arc defined in the sketch's coordinate system. This is a calculated value based on the center, start, angle of the arc and any subsequent operations applied to the element. Read only.

Evaluated Locations/Start - [LENGTH] – Post-operation start location of the arc defined in the sketch's coordinate system. This is a calculated value based on the center, start, angle of the arc and any subsequent operations applied to the element. Read only.

Evaluated Locations/End - [LENGTH] – Post-operation end location of the arc defined in the sketch's coordinate system. This is a calculated value based on the center, start, angle of the arc and any subsequent operations applied to the element. Read only. (ICenterCircularArc/End)

Sketch Parameters:

Label – A unique name that identifies the sketch. (ISketch/Label)

Plane – Plane of the solid's coordinate system that the sketch lies in. (ISketch/Plane)

Offset - [LENGTH] – Distance from the origin of the solid's coordinate system to the sketch plane in a direction normal to the chosen sketch plane. (ISketch/PlaneOffset)
