shape_arc


Returns shape points of an arc shape. They can be used with xxx_extrude modules of dotSCAD. The shape points can be also used with the built-in polygon module.

Parameters

  • radius : The radius of the circle.
  • angle : A single value or a 2 element vector which defines the central angle. The first element of the vector is the beginning angle in degrees, and the second element is the ending angle.
  • width_mode : The default value is "LINE_CROSS". The arc line will move outward by width / 2 and inward by width / 2. If it's "LINE_OUTWARD", The arc line moves outward by width. The "LINE_INWARD" moves the arc line inward by width.
  • $fa, $fs, $fn : Check the circle module for more details.

Examples

include <shape_arc.scad>;

shape_pts = shape_arc(radius = 10, angle = [-90, 90], width = 5);
polygon(shape_pts);
