Cosmetic Vertices at midpoints of Edges


Usage

  1. Select one or more Edges in a View.
  2. Press the TechDraw Midpoints.svg Add Midpoint Vertices button
  3. Cosmetic Vertices will be added at the mid-point(s) of the Edge(s).

To delete a Midpoint, select it and use the toolbar button TechDraw CosmeticEraser.svg Remove Cosmetic Object.

Properties

Cosmetic Vertices have no properties of their own, as they are not Document Objects. They share color and size settings with regular geometry vertices.

Scripting

See also: TechDraw API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

Cosmetic Vertices are not accessible from macros or the Python console at this time. This snippet will remove all Cosmetic Vertices from the View.

>>> v = App.ActiveDocument.View
>>> v.clearCV()
>>> App.activeDocument().recompute()
