Summary

Is it possible to create revision clouds ? A revision cloud is simply a custom polyline with bulges.

Solution

In version 6026 a new command was added to the command action like below

summary> A command to Add a revision cloud.
param name="ArcDistance">A double value representing the arc distance OR null , "USER" so the user is asked for this value.
param name="figure">A vdCurve vdFigure or null , "USER" so the user is either asked to point a curve or start the commend and move the cursor to design the revision cloud.
returns>True if the command was succesfull.
remarks>
The vdCurve that is passed as parameter or selected by the user can be vdArc , vdPolyline , vdRect , vdEllipse , vdCircle.
If the user instead of choosing to select an entity (E) chooses to click to a point the command starts and arcs start to draw and to design the revision cloud. The command will end with either a right click (cancel) or a left click that will add the already designed revision cloud to the Document or if the user passes from the startpoint of the revision cloud in which case the command will exit.
public bool cmdCloud(object ArcDistance, object figure)

This command was added also in vdfCAD application.
