# Draw lines from center point

Hi Dear Community,

I am trying to draw lines from a center point. But things are getting weird.

I want to draw a line with 10 meter height. For example:

But lines’ heights are increasing:

Here’s my code:

``````var viewer = new Cesium.Viewer('cesiumContainer');

var thetaMax = 360;

var dTheta = 90;

var R = 1500000;

var centerLLH = Cesium.Cartographic.fromDegrees(40, 40 , 1000);

var centerXYZ = Cesium.Cartographic.toCartesian(centerLLH);

var enuTransform = Cesium.Transforms.eastNorthUpToFixedFrame(centerXYZ);

for (var theta = 0; theta < thetaMax; theta += dTheta) {
var dX = R * Math.cos(Cesium.Math.toRadians(theta)) ;

var dY = R * Math.sin(Cesium.Math.toRadians(theta));

var limitENU = new Cesium.Cartesian4(dX, dY, 0.0, 1.0);

var limitECF = new Cesium.Cartesian4();

limitECF = Cesium.Matrix4.multiplyByVector(enuTransform, limitENU, limitECF);

name : 'Ray at ' + theta + ' degrees ENU',

polyline : {

positions : [
centerXYZ,
limitECF
],
width : 5,
material : Cesium.Color.DARKRED.withAlpha(1),
}
});
console.log([
centerXYZ,
limitECF
]);
}

name: 'Center',
position: new Cesium.ConstantPositionProperty(centerXYZ),
point: {
size: 8
}
});

viewer.zoomTo(centerEntity);
``````

Have any idea what is causing it?

Thank you!

Hi,

I could not find the origin of your problem but a quick work around would be to make sure that the height by converting to LLH again.

``````limitECF = Cesium.Matrix4.multiplyByVector(enuTransform, limitENU, limitECF);
var limitLLH = Cesium.Cartographic.fromCartesian(limitECF);
limitLLH.height = 10;
limitECF = Cesium.Cartographic.toCartesian(limitLLH);
``````
