Determining the Radius

Command line: _NPC_RADIUS

The commandfor determining the radius allows you to get data on the radius of pipes and cylinders recognized in the point cloud in a form that allows you to transfer this information to other commands in the nanoCAD environment. The command is “transparent” and can be launched over an already running command. For example, the task is to draw a circle centered on the axis of a recognized pipe and with the radius of this pipe. To solve this problem, you can set up a 3D snap on the axis of the recognized geometry. Run the command to draw a circle by center and radius. Select the center point of the circle, the circle drawing command will ask for the radius. After that, without exiting the circle drawing command, run the radius determination command. Select the point of the pipe on the axis of which we have chosen the center of the circle. The command for determining the radius is completed and fills in the command line request to set the radius with the value of the pipe recognized in the cloud. The second scenario for using the command for determining the radius involves its isolated call. By calling the radius determination command, we can fill the clipboard with the radius of the pipe or cylinder we are interested in. This feature will allow you to interact with commands whose parameters are set through modal dialogs. Having remembered the radius value in the clipboard, when calling such a command, we can fill in the required field in the dialog with the radius value.
