geometry.angle function

Syntax

float geometry.angle(angleType)

Parameters

Returns

Angle of the current shape's geometry, depending on the selector, in degrees.

Description

azimuth is the horizontal angle measured clockwise from the north, i.e. 90 degrees is east, 180 degrees is south and 270 degrees is west. Azimuth is in the range [0, 360[.
The geometry.angle(zenith) function returns the same value as 90 - geometry.angle(maxSlope).

Examples

nada
Cone-->
    comp(f) { all : color(geometry.angle(maxSlope) / 90, 0.0, 0.0) Shape. }
nada
Cone-->
    comp(f) { all : color(0.5, geometry.angle(azimuth) / 360, 0.5) Shape. }





geometry.area function

Syntax

float geometry.area()

float geometry.area(faceOrientation)

Parameters

Returns

Surface area of the current shape's geometry, depending on the provided faceOrientation selector.

Description

The surface area of the geometry is the sum of the area of all its faces.






geometry.boundaryLength function

Syntax

float geometry.boundaryLength()

Returns

The sum of all boundary edge lengths. An edge is considered a boundary edge if it belongs to no more than one face.

geometry.du/dv functions

Syntax

float geometry.du(uvSet, surfaceParameterization)

float geometry.dv(uvSet, surfaceParameterization)

Parameters

Returns

The range (i.e. max - min) spanned by the u- or the v-coordinate, respectively, of the selected uvSet.

geometry.groups function

Syntax

string[] geometry.groups()

Returns

An array with group names.

The order of groups in the array corresponds to the order given by the indexed component split for groups. In other words, the index of an element in the array corresponds to the component index.
