Fences

Fences read AutoCAD polylines, arcs, circles, ellipses and splines. Fence is a vertical thin wall along the polyline.

Parameters

layer  - Layer where fence polylines or lines are.

materials  - Material of the fence.

description  - A descriptive text for the entry. If defined, will be shown instead of the long description.

info text  - Information text attached to items.

info URL  - URL link attached to items. The Explorer can launch a Web browser with the URL.

height  - Height of the fence.

texwidth  - Length of the texture image along the fence polyline. This value is multiplied by the defaultwidth value in concerned fence material. (The easiest way to define the the texture length is to set default width in material to 1.0 and then adjust this value only).

interpolation_mode  - top – Fence stretches from the ground. Top of the fence is set to the polyline eleva-tion.\\ bottom - Fence height is read from the  ‘height’ parameter (default setting).

Interpolate_to_materials  - In case of multiple materials on top of each other, defines the material that these items will be interpolated on.

position_offset  - After interpolation, moves the pipe location relative to polyline according to given transfor-mation parameters (X,Y,Z).

ending_mode  - Options: none/start/end/both: whether to apply 'fancy' ending (interpolation and offset) to either end of the fence.

ending_interpolate  - Options: normal/ground, if ground, top of the last pole is at ground level

ending_distance  - How long the ending is. A new vertex is inserted at ending_distance from the end of the fence and all vertices between it and the end are removed. if ending_distance=0, the ending length = last segment length.

ending_offset  - Distance to offset the last point from the fence last segment direction (negative = left from fence, positive = right from fence)

group  - The name of the group of these items.

auto_segmentation_distance  - Divides the original polyline with this distance and adds new points. This pa-rameter is useful for better control of follow surface and long arc segments.

auto_segmentation_angle  - Divides polylines using angle threshold so that resulting polyline will fall within this angle value. This has only effect for curved polyline segments like splines and arcs.

z-rotation  - Angle=  rotates the resulting object’s z-axis. With this parameter objects can be rotated so that they are not pointing upwards. Setting this to 90 will result objects that are horizontal.
