Page 2: Reflect (Reflect Model)

  • reflect panel
  • Figure 1 - Reflect Interface

Purpose: This interface is used to reflect or mirror selected nodes about a plane. The reflection plane can be specified in a number of ways:

  • 1. Normal to global x, y, or z directions
  • 2. Normal to a general vector defined by 2 nodes
  • 3. A plane defined by 3 nodes

The position of a reflection place can be defined by picking a node or keying in the coordinatess of a point on the plane. Reflections can be performed on selected nodes or a copy of the nodes. The copy option will retain the selected nodes at their original location.

Controls:

  • Plane: Select plane of reflection

  • cbc Pick node as pt. of reflec - Pick a node as the origin of the reflection

  • Node ID: Enter a node ID as the origin of the reflection (Hit enter to accept)
  • XYZ: Enter x,y,z coordinates as the origin of the reflection

  • cbc Node1 - Enter first node ID to define plane
  • cb Node2 - Enter second node ID to define plane
  • cb Node3 - Enter third node ID to define plane
