3.5.1.17. Wire Circular Arc

Description

A wire representing a circular arc defined by a center, start, and end points.

Parameters

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)

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)

Center - [LENGTH] – Center point of the arc defined in the solid’s coordinate system. (IWireCenterCircularArc/Center)

Start - [LENGTH] – Start point of the arc defined in the solid’s coordinate system. This point is used to define the radius of the arc. (IWireLine/Start)

End - [LENGTH] - End point of the arc defined in the solid’s coordinate system. This point is used to trim the arc and not to define the radius of the arc. (IWireLine/End)

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

Example(s)
