Description

The Quadrant tool adds Cosmetic Vertices at the 90/180/270 degree points of a circular Edge (the 0 degree vertex should already be there as a geometric vertex).

Cosmetic Vertices at quadrant points of a circle


How to use

  1. Select one or more (circular) Edges in a View.
  2. Press the Techdraw-quadrant.svg Quadrant button
  3. Cosmetic Vertices will be added at the quarter-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()


Notes

  • This feature was added in v0.19
  • This tool can actually be used on any Edge, not just circles.
