KeyboardOK Command line: POL, POLYGON

The command creates polygons with similar sides from closed polylines. A special case of equilateral polygon is a square.

The Explode command (from the Modify menu) allows transferring a polyline which polygon consists of, into segments.

Command options:

Edge

Create a polygon by its edge length. Edge length is specified by its endpoints.

Inscribed

Createan inscribed polygon by specifying a radius of circle, where polygon endpoints lie. If you specify a radius by mouse in graphic area (point 2), at the same time a rotation angle of polygon is specified.

Circumscribed

Create a circumscribed polygon by specifying a radius of circle, where middles of polygon’s edges lie. If you specify a radius by mouse in graphic area (point 2), at the same time a rotation angle of polygon is specified.
