You are here: Geometries > PathBuilder


Connects input linear (arcs and lines) features in the order they enter, forming path features.  

Note: For some datasets, it may be necessary to use a Sorter to order the data correctly before it enters this transformer.

If the end point of one input segment does not match the following segment's start point, geometry will be added to connect them in the following way. If the first segment is a line, then a point will be appended to it to extend it to the following segment's start point. If the first segment is an arc and the following segment is a line, then a point will be added to the beginning of the line to extend it to the first segment's end point. Otherwise, if both segments are arcs, then a two-point line will be inserted between these segments in the resulting path.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
