# t operation

t(tx, ty, tz)

## Parameters

• tx, ty, tz (float)
Amount to translate in each direction.

## Description

The t operation translates the scope by the vector (tx, ty, tz), i.e. the vector is added to scope.t. If the scope rotation is non-zero, then the passed translation vector is rotated around the pivot, with angles (scope.rx, scope.ry, scope.rz), first. In other words, the translation is relative to the scope axes.
The relative operator ' permits a convenient notation relative to the scope size: t('tx,0,0) is equivalent to t(tx*scope.sx, 0, 0).
Note: t(x,y,z) is the same as translate(rel, scope, x, y, z).

## Examples

### Translate - Rotation Concatenation

 ```A--> primitiveCube() ``` This is the initial shape we start with. ```A--> primitiveCube() t(2,0,0) ``` First a translation of two units along the x-axis. ```A--> primitiveCube() t(2,0,0) r(0,30,0) ``` Then a rotation of 30 degrees around the y-axis. ```A--> primitiveCube() t(2,0,0) r(0,30,0) t('2,0,0) ``` And another translation of 2 units along the x-axis. Note: translations are along the scope's x-axis, i.e. the rotation changes the global translation direction! the relative operator ' is used - here it does not make a difference because scope.sx is 1
