The TRACE entity (DXF Reference) is solid filled triangle or quadrilateral.
Access vertices by name (
entity.dxf.vtx0 = (1.7, 2.3)) or by
entity = (1.7, 2.3)). If only 3 vertices are provided the
last (3rd) vertex will be repeated in the DXF file.
The TRACE entity stores the vertices in an unusual way, the last two vertices are reversed:
msp.add_solid([(0, 0), (10, 0), (10, 10), (0, 10)])
Reverse the last two vertices to get the expected square:
msp.add_solid([(0, 0), (10, 0), (0, 10), (10, 10)])
The quirky vertex order is preserved at the lowest access level because ezdxf is intended as a DXF file format interface and presents the content of the DXF document to the package user as natively as possible.
Inherited DXF attributes
Do not instantiate entity classes by yourself - always use the provided factory functions!
- class ezdxf.entities.Trace¶
- vertices(close: bool = False) list[Vec3] ¶
Returns OCS vertices in correct order, if argument close is
True, last vertex == first vertex. Does not return the duplicated last vertex if the entity represents a triangle.
