Options

Principle :

the line is cut in x points with "discretize()" (here Number=500 cuts begin 0 to 499 you can modify)

pointsDirection = lineSelected.Shape.discretize(Number=500)             # discretize the path line first selection

the perpendicularity is calculate between 2 points modify :

1:

v=pointsDirection[0].sub(pointsDirection[1])          # perpendicular of first > second point

2:

v=pointsDirection[-1].sub(pointsDirection[-2])       # perpendicular of last > before last point
pl.Base = pointsDirection[-1]                        # position base last point

3:

v=pointsDirection[100].sub(pointsDirection[101])   # perpendicular of point 100 > point 101
pl.Base = pointsDirection[100]                     # position base point 100

4:

v=pointsDirection[0].sub(pointsDirection[-1])         # perpendicular of first point > last point
pl.Base = pointsDirection[0]                          # position base first point

#Discretizes the edge and returns a list of points.
#The function accepts keywords as argument:
#discretize(Number=n) => gives a list of 'n' equidistant points
#discretize(QuasiNumber=n) => gives a list of 'n' quasi equidistant points (is faster than the method above)
#discretize(Distance=d) => gives a list of equidistant points with distance 'd'
#discretize(Deflection=d) => gives a list of points with a maximum deflection 'd' to the edge
#discretize(QuasiDeflection=d) => gives a list of points with a maximum deflection 'd' to the edge (faster)
#discretize(Angular=a,Curvature=c,[Minimum=m]) => gives a list of points with an angular deflection of 'a'
#and a curvature deflection of 'c'. Optionally a minimum number of points
#can be set which by default is set to 2.
