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.


  • 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


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