I am trying to draw circle using API.
If I use feCircle3Point( pt1, pt2, pt3, messages ) method which creates circle in 3D space, then the boolean messages does not seem to work. I do not want the message to be displayed in the messages box. So I put "False", but it still shows up "Curve xx created" in the box.
If I use other methods, they create circle in defined workplane. And here the messages boolean works. But using this I am not able to define workplane through API. And I do not think "Defining Plane methods" are similar to "Defining workplane"?
Can anybody help me with this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The workplane in FEMAP is controlled Global Real Variables, i.e. to move the workplane in its current orientatinon to a different origin -
App.Info_WorkplaneOrigin(0) = 0.0
App.Info_WorkplaneOrigin(1) = 0.0
App.Info_WorkplaneOrigin(2) = 1.0
You can control the direction/orientation of the workplane with its direction cosines -
In the /api/GeometryProcessing folder under FEMAP there's an API called Move Workplane Tangent to Curve that demonstrates setting the workplane.
