A surface representing the interior of a regular polygon.


Label – A unique name that identifies the solid. (ISolid/Label)

Coordinate System – The coordinate system in which the solid is defined. Defaults to working coordinate system at time of creation. (ISolid/CoordinateSystem)

Material – Chosen material for the solid. (ISolid/Material)

Include in Simulation – Indicates if the solid is included in simulations.  If False, the solid is also not shown in the view. (ISolid/Include)

Visible - Indicates if the solid is shown in the view. (ISolid/Visible)

Mesh Control Only - Indicates if the solid is used as a tool to control meshing. If True, the portion of the solid that does not overlap the other normal solid is thrown away prior to simulation. Additionally, the material of such a solid is irrelevant so the material parameter is hidden. (ISolid/MeshControlOnly)

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

Center - [LENGTH] – Center of the polygon defined in the solid’s coordinate system. (ISurfaceCircle/Center)

Radius - [LENGTH] - Radius of the polygon. (ISurfaceCircle/Radius)

Number of Sides - Number of sides in the polygon. (ISurfaceRegularPolygon/NumberOfSides)


User Interface Button

Command Details

The Plane is inherited from the current working plane. Mouse click order is:
1. Center
2. Radius
See command hint for detailed instructions.


Radius must be greater than zero. Number of sides must be greater than 2.

Other Notes


Example Creation Script

Solid_1 = Geometry_1.SurfaceRegularPolygon("Polygon_1", "World", "Air", "XY", "-0.009, 0.008, 0", "0.005", "8")
