Rhino 6. Ellipse?

When I draw an ellipse in Rhino 6 What reports it as just a NURBs curve but V5 give this,

Do I need to change a setting or is there another way to get this info and check for an ellipse?

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark - I see that - I don’t know why that is, and I don’t see, off hand, a way to get the ellipse info in V6. The same curve pasted in V5 gives the expected info so the change seems to be in What and not the geometry… I’ll investigate, thanks.

A cheap script can get you some of the info for now -

EllipseInfo.py (1.9 KB)

Use RunPythonScipt or a macro

! _-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"



This converts nurbs to arcs (set the max length to something bigger than the circumference to make it a single arc

(that is in case of circle)

Thanks Pascal

Mostly made the post because I thought I might be missing something.
