Description

A Part Plane.svg Part Plane is a parametric rectangular plane that can be created with the Part Primitives.svg Part Primitives command. In the coordinate system defined by its DataPlacement property, the plane lies on the XY plane with its front left corner at the origin, and its front edge parallel to the X axis.

Usage

See Part Primitives.

Example

Part Plane from the scripting example

A Part Plane object created with the scripting example below is shown here.

Properties

See also: Property editor.

A Part Plane object is derived from a Part Feature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:

Data

Attachment

The object has the same attachment properties as a Part Part2DObject.

Plane

  • DataLength (Length): The length of the plane. This is the dimension in its X direction. The default is 10mm.
  • DataWidth (Length): The width of the plane. This is the dimension in its Y direction. The default is 10mm.

Scripting

See also: Autogenerated API documentation, Part scripting and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

A Part Plane can be created with the addObject() method of the document:

plane = FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.addObject("Part::Plane", "myPlane")
  • Where "myPlane" is the name for the object.
  • The function returns the newly created object.

Example:

import FreeCAD as App

doc = App.activeDocument()

plane = doc.addObject("Part::Plane", "myPlane")
plane.Length = 4
plane.Width = 8
plane.Placement = App.Placement(App.Vector(1, 2, 3), App.Rotation(20, 75, 60))

doc.recompute()
