Mirrored Extent Option enable for 3D line in CATIA VBA

Mirrored Extent Option enable for 3D line in CATIA VBA

Mirrored Extent Option enable for 3D line in CATIA VBA


Hi siva

This is regarding Mirrored Extent Enable Option for 3D line in CATIA R24

I had used the following syntax for surface to get mirrored extent.

surface1.SymmetricalExtension = 0

likewise what is the code for mirror extend for 3D LINE in Catia?

i tried using same as in surface with setsymmetricalextension

line1.setsymmetricalextension = 0

but i get compile error: argument not an option.

Advises please, thanks in advance

RE: Mirrored Extent Option enable for 3D line in CATIA VBA

I don't see that option in the line creation, only 2 offset values.

Func AddNewLinePtDir( Reference iPt,
HybridShapeDirection iDirection,
double iBeginOffset,
double iEndOffset,
boolean iOrientation) As HybridShapeLinePtDir

This works but be sure your beginoffset value is 0 and your desired length is the endoffset value.


Set hybridShapeLinePtDir1 = hybridShapeFactory1.AddNewLinePtDir(reference1, hybridShapeDirection1, 0, 60, False)

hybridShapeLinePtDir1.SetSymmetricalExtension (1)
