CAD drafting Revision Cloud 6 Command line: REVCLOUD

Revision clouds are polylines that consist of sequential arcs. The maximum arc length cannot be set to more than three times the minimum arc length.

Revision Clouds are used to drawing explanatory labels and markings on the drawings.

When you start the command, the current parameters of the revision cloud are displayed in the command line:

Minimum arc length: 15000.000000 Maximum arc length: 15000.000000 Style: Normal

note! The last specified arc length value is stored into the registry. To ensure consistency when you use different scale factors, this value is multiplied by the current value of the DIMSCALE system variable, which corresponds to the current value of the Dimension Scale or Symbol Scale.



Calls additional options to select the objects.
