Drawing polygons

 

Polygons are closed polylines composed of a minimum of three and a maximum of

1,024 equal-length sides. The default method for drawing a polygon is to specify the

center of the polygon and the distance from the center to each vertex. You can draw a

polygon using any of the following methods:

 

• Center-Vertex

• Center-Side

• Edge

 

Drawing polygons by vertex

 

You can create an equal-sided polygon defined by its center point and the distance to

its vertices. First specify the number of sides, then the center point, and then the location

of one vertex, which determines both the size and orientation of the polygon.

 

Drawing polygons by side

 

You can create a polygon with equal-length sides defined by its center point and the distance to the midpoint of a side. First specify the number of sides, then the center point, and then the location of the midpoint of one side, which determines both the size and orientation of the polygon.

 

Drawing polygons by specifying the length of an edge

 

You can create a polygon with equal-length sides defined by the length of one of the

polygon edges. First specify the number of sides, then the edge start point, and then

the edge end point, which determines both the size and orientation of the polygon.

 

You can edit each side of a polygon individually using the Edit Polyline tool ( ) on

the Modify toolbar. You can convert the sides into individual line entities using the

Explode tool ( ) on the Modify toolbar. You can control whether wide polygon

lines are shown filled or as outlines using the Fill tool ( ) on the Settings toolbar.
