Planar Shapes in 3D: i.e. Arc without fill

GDL Enthusiast
Enthusiast

Hi,

 

I would like to generate simple 3D lines using the Planar Shapes, but oddly they always seem to come prefilled. I have attached a screen shot to show how it automatically fills the shapes.

 

Here is a sample 3D Script:

ARC 0.02, 90, 0
ADD 0.05, 0, 0
CIRCLE 0.02
ADD 0.03, 0, 0
RECT 0.02, 0.02

 

Is there a way to have them not filled, just a simple ARC line? 

 

Many thanks, Matt

Use "model wire" beforehand.

It's a bit counterintuitive, but these commands have no flag for surface generation, so that's the way!
