Im going to write a FS with the funtion which could name the curve I created. 

but I see the type Curve is not supported in set property currently. is that right?

and for further purpuse, is it possible to set appearance or color for curve?



"setProperty (context is Context, definition is map)

Sets a property on a set of bodies and/or faces. The allowed properties are listed in PropertyType. Only APPEARANCE and NAME properties are supported for faces."

    A curve is a wire body so NAME will work, but appearances can only be applied to Parts, Surfaces or Faces. If you create a closed Composite Part using the curves, you can then set the colour (and the name). Docs should be updated.
