3.7.1.6. Tangent at Start Circular Arc Element

Description

An element representing a circular arc defined by a tangent line, a start point, and an end point. The first two points define the tangent line.

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)

Tangent Point - [LENGTH] – First point on the line to which the arc will be tangent. The other point defining the tangent line is the Start point. Defined in the sketch's coordinate system (IPoint/Location)

Start - [LENGTH] – Second point of the line to which the arc will be tangent and start point of the arc defined in the sketch's coordinate system. (IPoint/Location)

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

Evaluated Locations/Tangent Point - [LENGTH] – Post-operation first point on the line to which the arc will be tangent, defined in the sketch's coordinate system. This is a calculated value based on the tangent point of the element and any subsequent operations applied to the element. Read only.

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

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

Example(s)

User Interface Button

Command Details

Mouse click order is:
1. Tangent Point
2. Start
3. End
See command hint for detailed instructions.

Requirements

Tangent, start, and end points must be distinct. If the 3 points are co-linear, the arc is a line segment.

Other Notes

None.
