Description

Procedure AddCavity creates a wall cavity in a new wall object. The newly defined cavity becomes the default for all subsequently defined walls.

To apply a bitmap fill pattern, use positive value corresponding to the index of the bitmap pattern. To apply a vector fill pattern, use the negative of the vector fill index (index * -1).

Fill patterns and their associated constants can be found in the VectorScript Appendix.

PROCEDURE AddCavity(
pair  :BOOLEAN;
leftOffDistance  :REAL;
rightOffDistance  :REAL;
pairFill  :LONGINT);
def vs.AddCavity(pair, leftOffDistance, rightOffDistance, pairFill):
    return None

Parameters

pair BOOLEAN Double line display mode.
leftOffDistance REAL Left edge offset from wall centerline.
rightOffDistance REAL Right edge offset from wall centerline.
pairFill LONGINT Fill index for filled cavities.

Remarks

(NZH 5-9-05) OBSOLETE for Version 12: Use VS:InsertNewComponent instead.

Example

VectorScript

{ Create wall object with 1" wide cavity using black pattern fill.}
DoubLines(6");
AddCavity(TRUE, 1", 2", 2);
Wall(0, 1, 9, 1);

{ Create wall object with 1" wide cavity using a custom hatch fill.}
DoubLines(6");
AddCavity(TRUE, 1", 2", -Name2Index('My Hatch'));
Wall(0, 1, 9, 1);

Python

#{ Create wall object with 1" wide cavity using black pattern fill.}
vs.DoubLines(6)
vs.AddCavity(1, 1, 2, 2)
vs.Wall(0, 1, 9, 1)

#{ Create wall object with 1" wide cavity using a custom hatch fill.}
vs.DoubLines(6)
vs.AddCavity(1, 1, 2, -vs.Name2Index('My Hatch'))
vs.Wall(0, 1, 9, 1)

Version

AddCavity is obsolete as of VectorWorks 12.0.

Availability: from MiniCAD 4.0
