# CircularPlate.PFM

## Description

This macro permits the creation of the points and the lines of a circular plate, i.e. of a cylinder. Indeed, the circumference of the plate is represented by a sequence of segments.

After the execution of this macro, in order to complete the construction, the user will have to build the faces and build the volume of the cylinder.

## Input

• Axis of the XYZ1 coordinate system, which is perpendicular to the plate face, in other words, the axis along which the thickness of the circular plate is considered
• Value of the three coordinates, expressed in the XYZ1 coordinate system, of the centre of the cylinder
• Thickness and the radius of the circular plate, expressed in the length unit of the coordinate system
• Number of points which permit the construction of the segments approximating the circumference of the plate

## Output

• Points of the curcular plate
• Lines of the circular plate
