X3DGeometryNode, X3DNode
All Known Implementing Classes:
Arc2DObject

public interface Arc2D
extends X3DGeometryNode
Arc2D is a line-based geometry node that defines a linear circular arc with center (0,0) in X-Y plane, with angles measured starting at positive x-axis and sweeping towards positive y-axis.

  • Hint: Material emissiveColor in corresponding Appearance is used for rendering lines.
  • Warning: lines are not lit, are not texture-mapped, and do not participate in collision detection.
  • Warning: use a different Material emissiveColor than the Background color, otherwise geometry is invisible.
  • Hint: adding LineProperties to the corresponding Appearance node can modify the rendering style of these lines.
  • Hint: insert a Shape node before adding geometry or Appearance.
  • Warning: requires X3D profile='Full' or else include <component name='Geometry2D' level='2'/> Examples: X3D Example Archives, X3D for Web Authors, Chapter 10 Geometry 2D https://x3dgraphics.com/examples/X3dForWebAuthors/Chapter10Geometry2D

    • getEndAngle

      float getEndAngle()
      Provide float value unit axis, angle (in radians) within allowed range of (-6.2832,6.2832) from initializeOnly SFFloat field named endAngle.

      Tooltip: [0,2pi] Arc extends from startAngle counterclockwise to endAngle, in radians.
      • Warning: simple-geometry dimensions are initializeOnly and cannot be changed after initial creation, for size animation use an ancestor Transform scale instead.
