Cosmetic Vertices at midpoints of Edges


How to use

  1. Select one or more Edges in a View.
  2. Press the Techdraw-midpoint.svg Midpoints button
  3. Cosmetic Vertices will be added at the mid-point(s) of the Edge(s).


Properties

Cosmetic Vertices have no properties of their own, as they are not Document Objects. They share color and size settings with regular geometry vertices.

Scripting

See also: TechDraw API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

Cosmetic Vertices are not accessible from macros or the Python console at this time. This snippet will remove all Cosmetic Vertices from the View.

>>> v = App.ActiveDocument.View
>>> v.clearCV()
>>> App.activeDocument().recompute()
