Instance Method Details

#positionObject

The position method is used to retrieve a Point3d used to create a construction point.

Examples:

model = Sketchup.active_model
entities = model.active_entities
point1 = Geom::Point3d.new(10,0,0)
constpoint = entities.add_cpoint point1
# Returns 10,0,0
position = constpoint.position

Returns:

  • point - the Point3d object used to create the ConstructionPoint
