I am trying to create a property by using Python API where it should show the area of the Component. If I import a CAD model the area of the CAD Model that I imported should be visible when it is in §D environment. I am trying to find a way to do so. Can somebody help me with this?
I am thinking to do this from the position matrix where I can calculate the points and the area from it. Or suggest me some other ways.
look in VC-Help for “vcNode”, there are some Properties like “BoundCenter” and “BoundDiagonal”.
In combination with positionMatrix you should be able to solve it?
Thanks for your suggestion. If I can create four nodes that bounds the area then from the Position of the nodes I might calculate the area.
or please suggest me how I can solve this “Area of an Object”
do you have an example component?
Unfortunately I don’t have one.
But for example if we consider a Cube or Cylinder or a Cone , how to find the area of this Component by using Python API. Are there any Methods existing to achieve this?
