  • Centroid Point

    Can some one please tell me how can I find centroid point information?
    I would like to know where is the centroid point for 2d and 3d line?

    Thanks

    I believe all you need to do is create a point. Select just the one line and create the point and it is at the cetroid. Then, you can dimension the location of the point.

      Simply dimensioning the line will give you the same data as constructing a point from the line.

        True, Now why didn't I think of that. I guess I was thinking he needed a visual representation of the centriod.

          wouldnt it be:

          Line1.ACT.X
          Line1.ACT.Y
          Line1.ACT.Z

          or something like that

            I am not sure but if you create 2d line that means second point will be the centroid of that line
            If you create 3d line then center of that line will be the centroid.
            There is somewhere for Cylider and cone too But I am not sure.

              OK are we talking constructed line or measured line? Is there a diference in regards to feature location (does it report centroid or does it report center hit if more than 2)?

                  If these are constructed lines, then instead of constructing lines, simply construct the mid point and dimension it. If you need the lines, dimensioning the lines themselves will give you the centroid/midpoint of the line.

                    Check the help menu definition, (I have a long program running or I would), but I believe that is what a constructed "cast" point is, the centroid of the feature. HTH

                      Regardless of the size of the head on the beer, I believe that any dimension to/from a line is taken from the "centroid". The only change to this is if you use a modifier (parallel, perpendicular,....)
