Description

Creates a simple parametric sphere, with position, angle1, angle2, angle3 and radius parameters.

Usage

  1. Switch to the Workbench Part.svg Part Workbench
  2. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Part Sphere.svg button in the toolbar.
    • Select the Part → Primitives → Part Sphere.svg Sphere from the menu bar.

Result: The sphere will be positioned at origin (point 0,0,0) on creation. The angle parameters permit to make a portion of sphere instead of a full sphere (they are set to 360° by default).

The sphere properties can later be edited, either in the property editor or by double-clicking on the sphere in the model tree.

Properties

The picture below gives an overview of a parametric sphere with parameters different from the default value.

  • DataRadius: Radius of the sphere
  • DataAngle 1: 1nd angle to cut / define the sphere
  • DataAngle 2: 2nd angle to cut / define the sphere
  • DataAngle 3: 3rd angle to cut / define the sphere

Because it is quite difficult to explain the meaning of the parameters angle 1, angle 2, angle 3, the picture below gives an explanation about these parameters with following values: angle 1 = -45°, angle 2 = 45° and angle 3= 90°.
