Method and values


Selects the method to create Polar array:

·         Total number of items and Angle to Fill

·         Total number of items and Angle between items 

·         Angle to fill and Angle between items

Total number of items:

Specifies the number of arrayed items, including the original.

Angle to fill:

Specifies the angle between the first and last item in the array. A negative number produces a clockwise array rotation.

CAD software 3D Array 13

Specifies the angle on screen.

Angle between items:

Specifies the angle between items in the array.

CAD drawing 3D Array 14

Specifies the angle on screen.

Rotate items as copied

Controls whether items are rotated as they are arrayed.
