Macro Line Length.png Macro Line Length

Description
Create a line giving as an argument the XYZ coordinates, length, and angle. The new line is created in the real coordinate of object, not in the coordinate of the Body.
(Command line, paste this complete macro in the Python console).

Description

This small macro create a line giving as an argument the XYZ coordinates, length, and angle

Usage

Can be used from the Freecad macro editor.

the default values are : x1 = 0, y1 = 0, z1 = 0, length = 10, angle = 0

Macro Line_Length.py

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
# créer une ligne avec une coordonnée une longueur et un angle sur le plan X Y
# create line with coordinate length and angle to plane X Y
import FreeCAD, FreeCADGui, Draft
from math import cos, sin, radians
#from FreeCAD import Base
 
def line_length(x1 = 0.0, y1 = 0.0, z1 = 0.0, length = 10.0, angle = 0.0):
    x2 = x1 + (length * cos(radians(angle)))
    y2 = y1 + (length * sin(radians(angle)))
    z2 = z1 #+ ()
    Draft.makeWire([FreeCAD.Vector(x1,y1,z1),FreeCAD.Vector(x2,y2,z2)])

#Example:
#x1 = 0.0          # Edit coordinate x1 origin
#y1 = 0.0          # Edit coordinate y1 origin
#z1 = 0.0          # Edit coordinate z1 origin
#length = 50.0       # Edit length
#angle  = 45.0       # Edit angle plane XY
 
#line_length(x1, y1, z1, length, angle)


Example

If the macro is copied in the Python console, you can use it by:

>>> line_length(x1 = 0, y1 = 0, z1 = 0, length = 10, angle = 45)

or choice

>>> line_length(x1 = 10, y1 = 10, z1 = 0, length = 50)

>>> line_length(length = 50, angle = 45)
