CAD functions for Models See models - Internal / External Models See also codes for models see also Internal Models / External Models see also Codes for Models Models use keycode M ____________________________________________________________________________

M int.Model Submodel Pos [Vec/Refsys]

Positioning an internal sub-model (all exported objects of the submodel (its joints) will be imported. Text of imported notes will be queried newly.) Submodel - Select a sub-model from list (or use middle-mousebutton) - or select an existing sub-model Position,Orientation Origin and orientation of the submodel [Scale]: magnifying scale; default is 1 Examples: # Internal Submodel "SM1", rotated 45 degree around z-axis, scale=2 M20="SM1" R(P(100 0) 45) VAL(2) ____________________________________________________________________________

M ext.Model Filename Pos [Vec/Refsys]

Positioning an external sub-model Submodel - Select a sub-model from list (or use middle-mousebutton) - or select an existing sub-model Modelname: see Symbolic filenames. Position,Orientation Origin and orientation of the submodel [Scale]: magnifying scale; default is 1 Example of an external model: M20 = "Data/Niet1.dat" R(P(100 0) DIY) VAL(0.5) Example of a WRL triangle-mesh model: M21 = "Data/clocktwr.wrl" R(P(0 0 0) R20) At the moment you can use the following file formats for external sub-models: GCAD, WRL, STL, OBJ. You cannot use DXF, IGS, STP yet. At the moment external sub-models cannot have internal or external sub-models. ____________________________________________________________________________

M CatalogModel Pos [Vec/Refsys]

Positioning an Catalog-Part CatalogPart - Select a catalogPart from list (or use middle-mousebutton) - or select an existing catalogPart The catalogPartname consists of catalog name, part name; see Catalog. Position,Orientation Origin and orientation of the submodel [Scale]: magnifying scale; default is 1 Example external Model: M22=CTLG "Schrauben/SKS_10x30" P20 VAL(1) ____________________________________________________________________________
