Curved Wall Parameters for Labels and Column Section for Labels

Jochen Suehlo

I am looking for a Global Variable which defines the radius of a curved wall. I want to follow with a fill (defined in a label) the outer contours of the wall.


Something similar for a column: the Global Variables for the outer contours for normal columns or for columns with a profile.

there is LABEL_ASSOC_ELEM_GEOMETRY for walls. This is the reference line only, not enough data for a fill. Maybe you can do something with WALL_SKINS_PARAMS, but there is no information about the reference line offset.

Note that using this makes sense only from a label which has no pointer, as AC moves the drawing if there is a pointer.


COLU_SEGMENT_INFO gives general cross-section information, but no position, direction, rotation.


Please make a feature wish to let GS know that drawing on the labelled objects would be useful.
