Create radial shape

Description

Use the radial object to create a radial shape on the X-Y plane.

Creation

Description

example

radialshape = radial creates a radial shape on the X-Y plane.

radialshape = radial(Name=Value) sets Properties using one or more name-value arguments. For example, radial(ReferencePoint=[1 1]) creates a radial shape with the reference point at [1 1]. Properties not specified retain their default values.

Properties

expand all

Name of the radial shape, specified as a character vector or string scalar.

Example: radialshape = radial(Name='radialShape')

Data Types: char | string

Reference point of radial shape, specified as a two-element vector of nonnegative elements in Cartesian coordinates. Use the reference point to modify the shape relative to its initial position.

Example: radialshape = radial(ReferencePoint=[1 1])

Data Types: double

Outer radius of the radial shape, specified as a positive scalar in meters.

Example: radialshape = radial(OuterRadius=0.0024)

Data Types: double

Inner radius of the radial shape, specified as a positive scalar in meters. This value truncates the radial from the tip.

Example: radialshape = radial(InnerRadius=0.4)

Data Types: double

Angel of the radial shape, specified as a positive scalar in degrees. The value of the angle must be greater than 0 degrees and lesser than 180 degrees.

Example: radialshape = radial(Angle=50)

Data Types: double
