# Path2D:getPathPoints

**Available since:** Gideros 2018.12

**Class:** Path2D

### Description

Compute points location along the path. To do so, the path is converted into a series of straight segments and particular points are sampled along it. The resulting table outputs, for each point, its location (x,y) and its tangent orientation (angle)

```
(table) = Path2D:getPathPoints(interval,offset,maxpts,flatness,subdiv_limit)
```

### Parameters

**interval**: (number) distance between each considered point

**offset**: (number) distance to first point of interest. Defaults to 0. **optional**

**maxpts**: (number) maximum number of points to sample. Defaults to 1000. **optional**

**flatness**: (number) maximum acceptable deviation for real curve. Defaults to 1. **optional**

**subdiv_limit**: (number) maximum curve subdivision limit. Defaults to 10. **optional**

### Return values

**Returns** (table) information about selected points
