Featurelines - Create Curves for Tessellated Featurelines

Postby Lincoln » Fri Jan 24, 2020 7:45 pm

It would be really helpful to have a tool that creates curves for tesselated featurelines to replace the small tessellated segments.

In the attached image a featureline is shown that was extracted from a Corridor.

Run Check for Updates and give this command a try.

Code: Select all

Command: FigResArc
DS> Select Figures ...
Select objects: 1 found
Select objects:
DS> Maximum Distance <10.0000>:
DS> Restored (3) Arcs on (1) Figures.
DS> Use GMCLEAR to remove temporary markers !!!


The Maximum Distance is slightly bigger than the longest short chord distance. Anything longer is assumed to be a (keeper) straight segment. Does not support compound or reverse curves.

I think we need a setting for whether to draw the glyphs, some people might like the visual feedback, some might not.

if it works okay we'll add it to the menu, ribbon, etc.

I'm trying to select a Featurline, however it is saying 0 found..

Properties says it's an Auto Corridor feature line. I extracted it and chose not to have the dynamic link option.

When Google returns (6) results you've got yourself a rarity. The API doesn't have a selection class for it, since it is actually just a FeatureLine. So the plan is to allow Figure > Convert to convert it to a standard FL, then it can be used with all the other figure tools.
