Polyline
- class compas.geometry.Polyline(points, **kwargs)[source]
Bases:
Primitive
A polyline is defined by a sequence of points connected by line segments.
- Parameters
points (list[[float, float, float] |
compas.geometry.Point
]) – An ordered list of points. Each consecutive pair of points forms a segment of the polyline.- Attributes
points (list[
compas.geometry.Point
]) – The points of the polyline.lines (list[
compas.geometry.Line
], read-only) – The lines of the polyline.length (float, read-only) – The length of the polyline.
Notes
A polyline is a piecewise linear element. It does not have an interior. It can be open or closed. It can be self-intersecting.
Examples
>>> polyline = Polyline([[0,0,0], [1,0,0], [2,0,0], [3,0,0]]) >>> polyline.length 3.0
>>> type(polyline.points[0]) == Point True >>> polyline.points[0].x 0.0
>>> type(polyline.lines[0]) == Line True >>> polyline.lines[0].length 1.0
