|Introduced in version|
A Part RegularPolygon is a parametric shape that can be created with the Part Primitives command. In the coordinate system defined by its DataPlacement property, the polygon lies on the XY plane with its center at the origin and one of its vertices on the X axis.
See Part Primitives.
A Part RegularPolygon object created with the scripting example below is shown here.

A Part RegularPolygon object is derived from a Part Feature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:
The object has the same attachment properties as a Part Part2DObject.
- DataPolygon (
IntegerConstraint): The number of sides of the polygon. The default is
- DataCircumradius (
Length): The radius of the circle that circumscribes the polygon, the distance from the center of the polygon to one of its vertices. The default is
A Part RegularPolygon can be created with the
addObject() method of the document:
poly = FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.addObject("Part::RegularPolygon", "myPolygon")
"myPolygon"is the name for the object.
- The function returns the newly created object.
import FreeCAD as App doc = App.activeDocument() poly = doc.addObject("Part::RegularPolygon", "myPolygon") poly.Polygon = 5 poly.Circumradius = 8 poly.Placement = App.Placement(App.Vector(1, 2, 3), App.Rotation(60, 30, 15)) doc.recompute()
