Script for generating spheres (fSphere)

anass_assadikianass_assadiki Member Posts: 2
Hello All,

I am still new to FeatureScript. I am trying to write a FS to generate spheres taking in the following input:
- Radius
- X,Y,Z coordinates of the center

Here is what I could do so far and I don't know how to more further. I don't know what to do with the coordinates..

FeatureScript 799;
import(path : "onshape/std/geometry.fs", version : "799.0");

annotation { "Feature Type Name" : "drawSphere" }
export const myFeature = defineFeature(function(context is Context, id is Id, definition is map)
        // Define the parameters of the feature type
        annotation { "Name" : "Radius" }
        isLength(definition.Radius, NONNEGATIVE_LENGTH_BOUNDS);
        annotation { "X" : "X coord" }
        isLength(definition.Xcoord, LENGTH_BOUNDS);
        annotation { "Y" : "X coord" }
        isLength(definition.Ycoord, LENGTH_BOUNDS);
        annotation { "Z" : "Z coord" }
        isLength(definition.Zcoord, LENGTH_BOUNDS);
        // Define the function's action
        fSphere(context, id, definition.Radius);

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    I would suggest you use opSphere, which is the operation, not fSphere. This also has in-context documentation and an example which shows how to pass the values:

            opSphere(context, id, {
                    "radius" : 1 * inch,
                    "center" : vector(1, 1, 1) * inch
