MGED CMD eqn


eqn[edit]

Syntax[edit]

eqn A B C


Argument(s)[edit]

A B C
Valid Plane Equation coeffcients.


Return Value(s)[edit]

No Return Values for this command.


Description[edit]

The "eqn" command allows the user to rotate the face of an ARB shape by providing the coefficients of an equation of the desired plane for the face. The coefficients A, B, and C are from the plane equation: >>> Ax + By + Cz = D >> The user must be editing an ARB shape and be rotating a face of the ARB for this command to have any effect. When entering such a state, the user will be asked which of the face vertices should be held constant, and from this information the D coefficient of the equation is determined.


Example(s)[edit]

mged> eqn 0 0 1
Rotate the face of the ARB being edited to be parallel to the xy plane
