Using Angles and Setting Up Points
There are still a couple of issues remaining. First, you need to figure out how to
draw the path at any angle the user specifies. From the gp:getPointInput function, you can easily establish the primary angle of the path. To draw it, you
need a couple of additional vectors perpendicular to the primary angle.
This is where the Degrees-Radians function is useful. The following code fragment demonstrates how you can set up your
two perpendicular vectors using the PathAngle variable as an argument passed to the Degrees-Radians function:
(setq angp90 (+ PathAngle (Degrees-Radians 90)) angm90 (- PathAngle (Degrees-Radians 90)))
With the data you now have in hand, you can establish the four corner points of the
path using polar function:
(setq p1 (polar StartPt angm90 HalfWidth) p2 (polar p1 PathAngle PathLength) p3 (polar p2 angp90 Width) p4 (polar p3 (+ PathAngle (Degrees-Radians 180))
The polar function returns a 3D point at a specified angle and distance from a point. For instance,
polar locates p2 by projecting p1 a distance of PathLength along a vector oriented at an angle of PathAngle, counter-clockwise from the x-axis.
