Left or Right edge Wall

Recommended Posts


I want to make a round wall in Vectorscript

(that's not the Problem)

at the moment it looks like this:

{I need the center at 0,0, therefore I need the script}

Procedure WallZero;
X1, Y1, X2, Y2 :Real;


GetPt(X1, Y1);
GetPt(X2, Y2);
RoundWall(0, 0, X1, Y1, X2, Y2);


Now i want to draw it with the left/right edge option,

but I didn't found a function for this...

Can someone help me?

Hi M.

If you wanted to draw at 0,0 you could do this by hand by selecting the round wall tool. Press the tab key and enter 0 into the x field, tab and 0 into the y field.

If you want to use a script, you can calculate the radius of the round wall center line with a formula like radius of right edge - 1/2 wall thickness, or radius left edge + 1/2 wall thickness.

If you are getting the parameters by input from the user, like the example script in the documentation for the RoundWall function, you could calculate the coordinate parameters to adjust for the desired edge offset.

I didn't see a left/right edge option in the documentation, either.

Dank je well, Gerard.

I tried it by my own (and had a look on your script while doing it).

Its not pretty but works for me.
