The arcade library is a high-tech Python Package with an advanced set of tools for making 2D games with gripping graphics and sound. It is Object-oriented and is specially built for Python 3.6 and above versions.

Arcade has two inbuilt functions for drawing arc:

1: arcade.draw_arc_outline ( ): This function is used to draw an arc which is useful for drawing curved lines

Syntax: arcade.draw_arc_outline(center_x , center_y, width , height, color, start_angle, end_angle , border_width, tilt_angle, num_segments)

Parameters:

  • center_x : x position that is the center of the arc.
  • center_y : y position that is the center of the arc.
  • width : width of the arc.
  • height : height of the arc.
  • color : Outline color of the arc.
  • start_angle : start angle of the arc in degrees.
  • end_angle : end angle of the arc in degrees.
  • border_width : width of line in pixels.
  • tilt_angle : angle the arc is tilted.
  • num_segments :  Higher is the num of segments ,better is the quality .

Let’s see the below example:-

Python3




import arcade
 
# Open the window. Set the window title and
# dimensions (width and height)
arcade.open_window(600, 600, "Draw  an arc  for GfG ")
 
arcade.set_background_color(arcade.color.WHITE)
 
# Start the render process.
arcade.start_render()
 
arcade.draw_arc_outline(150, 81, 15, 36,
                        arcade.color.BLACK, 90, 360)
 
arcade.finish_render()
 
arcade.run()

Output:

2: arcade.draw_arc_filled( ): This function is used to draw a arc filled with color which are useful for drawing pie-wedges, or Pac-Man.

Syntax: arcade.draw_arc_outline(center_x , center_y, width , height, color, start_angle, end_angle , tilt_angle, num_segments)

Parameters:

  • center_x : x position that is the center of the arc.
  • center_y : y position that is the center of the arc.
  • width : width of the arc.
  • height : height of the arc.
  • color  : color to be filled in the arc.
  • start_angle : start angle of the arc in degrees.
  • end_angle : end angle of the arc in degrees.
  • tilt_angle : angle the arc is tilted.
  • num_segments : Number of line segments used to draw the arc.

Let’s take an example to get a clear picture of the functionality.

Python3




# import arcade module
import arcade
 
# Open the window. Set the window title and
# dimensions (width and height)
arcade.open_window(600, 600, "Draw  an arc  for GfG ")
 
# set a background color
arcade.set_background_color(arcade.color.WHITE)
 
# Start the render process.
arcade.start_render()
 
# function for drawing arc
arcade.draw_arc_filled(150, 144, 85, 86,
                       arcade.color.BOTTLE_GREEN, 90, 360, 45, 54)
 
# finished drawing
arcade.finish_render()
 
# to display everything
arcade.run()

Output:
