Description

This command will create a elliptical curved edge. With the default values, the elliptical curved edge will be closed and therefore will be an ellipse. If the properties Angle 1 or Angle 2 are changed from their default values (0 and 360) the edge will be an open curve.

Usage

The Create Primitives dialogue can be accessed via the CreatePrimitives icon Part CreatePrimitives.svg located in the Part menu or the Part toolbar, in the Part Workbench.


Properties

  • Major radius: the major radius of the ellipse, the default value is 4
  • Minor radius: the minor radius of the ellipse, the default value is 2
  • Angle 1: start of the edge of the ellipse or elliptical curved edge, (degrees anti-clockwise), the default value is 0
  • Angle 2: end of the edge of the ellipse or elliptical curved edge, (degrees anti-clockwise), the default value is 360
