# txsolid sizing Experimenter

Is there somewhere specifically someone can point me towards to retrieve information about a TxSolid Object?

for example, I have a TxSolid that was initially created by TxSphereCreation Data.

Id like at a later time be able to determine the radius of the sphere, but all i know is that it is a TxSolid, and not necessarily a Sphere.

if not, then does anyone have a formula for the matrix to retrieve the same information? Im decompiling dlls to try to find out but i figured i should ask first.

Hello Mookiejones,

You can get the Approximation property of the TxSolid and analyze the points and primitives.

The API returns data object that contains a buffer of points and a buffer of primitive indices.

Use the primitive indices to get the list of polylines that compose this approximation as the approximation is not a single polyline primitive that contain all the points in the buffer.

Best Regards,

Thats what i thought..

is there any chance you have any sample code to start with?

Take a look this code, it calculate radius of txsolid sphere:

TxSolid solid = solids as TxSolid;
TxVector point = solid.Approximation.Points; // The point is measure from sphere origin not absolute, so you must transform it to current solid position
//TransformVector(ref point, solid.AbsoluteLocation);
TxVector radiusVt = point - solid.GeometricCenter.Translation;
double r = Math.Round(Math.Sqrt(radiusVt.X * radiusVt.X + radiusVt.Y * radiusVt.Y + radiusVt.Z * radiusVt.Z), 3);
