# QuadranglesΒΆ

Manage the quadrangles of the document.

Add a quadrangle in the document:

```
quad_1 = doc.addQuad(edge_1, edge_2, edge_3, edge_4)
quad_2 = doc.addQuadVertices(vertex_1, vertex_2, vertex_3, vertex_4)
```

Notice: the vertices and edges follow the outline of the quadrangle.

Get the number of all quadrangles of the document:

```
sum_a = doc.countQuad()
```

Get the number of used quadrangles in the model of blocks:

```
sum_u = doc.countUsedQuad()
```

Get the quads used by the model of blocks

Get a quadrangle of the document:

```
quad_i = doc.getQuad(i)
```

Get an edge of a quadrangle:

```
edge_e = quad_i.getEdge(0 or 1 or 2 or 3)
```

Get a vertex of a quadrangle:

```
vertex_v = quad_i.getVertex(0 or 1 or 2 or 3)
```

Find a quadrangle in the document:

```
quad_f = doc.findQuad(vertex_1, vertex_2)
```
