POLYGON Command

POLYGON Command

Creates an equilateral closed polyline. 

You specify the number of sides of the polygon and whether it is inscribed or circumscribed. 

The following prompts are displayed: 

Number of Sides
Specifies the number of sides in the polygon (3-1024). 

Center of Polygon

Specifies the location of the center of the polygon and whether the new object is inscribed or circumscribed. 

Inscribed in Circle
Specifies the radius of a circle on which all vertices of the polygon lie. 

Specifying the radius with your pointing device determines the rotation and size of the polygon. Specifying the radius with a value draws the bottom edge of the polygon at the current snap rotation angle. 
Circumscribed About Circle
Specifies the distance from the center of the polygon to the midpoints of the edges of the polygon. 

Specifying the radius with your pointing device determines the rotation and size of the polygon. Specifying the radius with a value draws the bottom edge of the polygon at the current snap rotation angle. 
Edge
Defines a polygon by specifying the endpoints of the first edge.
