Hello group,

I have a request from a customer to draw a specific parabola curve described as follows: Y=X squared / 4P. Where P = 6.
Anybody knows how to do that?

Thanks,

Jeannette

Dish antenna?

Bob

select a value for x calculate y X=-1 P=6 Y=(x*x)/(4

X=0 P=6 Y=(x*x)/(4

X=1 P=6 Y=(x*x)/(4

X=2 P=6 Y=(x*x)/(4

so the command is draw single point enter the location if x=1 then 1,1/24 if x=2 then 2,4/24 if x=3 then 3,9/24 etc. connect the dots with polyline arcs. the closer the dots to each other the more accurate the curve.

Bob

or connect the dots with a spline

Hello,

There is a a little program (20 years old) to draw parabolic curves at http://www.martinvogel.de/prog/marvolisp.html - you can download the marvolisp.zip file, extract it into your AutoCAD's support directory and start the program with the command !(load "parabel.lsp") and then "parabel".

There is also a program called Z-grapher (freeware) which will do any functional, parametric or polar graph, and can export to a rastered format by copying and pasting. For this, I use Irfanview. ________________________________________ Everyone is a little krazy, but I am the kynge of krazy
