CAD functions for planes and axis systems:

Planes and axis systems use the shortcut letter R. Pre-defined planes are: Vordefinierte Ebenen sind: RZ XY (Z=0) Plane-X = Refsys-X Plane-Y = Refsys-Y (Plane-Z = Refsys-Z) RY XZ (Y=0) Plane-X = Refsys-IX Plane-Y = Refsys-Z (Plane-Z = Refsys-Y) RX YZ (X=0) Plane-X = Refsys-Y Plane-Y = Refsys-Z (Plane-Z = Refsys-X) RIZ XY (Z=0) Plane-X = Refsys-X Plane-Y = Refsys-IY (Plane-Z = Refsys-IZ) RIY XZ (Y=0) Plane-X = Refsys-IX Plane-Y = Refsys-IZ (Plane-Z = Refsys-IY) RIX YZ (X=0) Plane-X = Refsys-Y Plane-Y = Refsys-IZ (Plane-Z = Refsys-IX) ____________________________________________________________________________

PLN Z-Axis [X-Axis]

Plane from Z-Axis (normal vector), optional origin, X-Axis or point on x-axis, offset along z-axis. [Origin] optional; Z-Axis enter DX or DY or DZ or a vektor; (the Z-axis of the new plane) [X-Axis] optional: the new X-axis; DX or DY or DZ or a defined vector or a point on the new x-axis. [offset Z-axis] optional: distance of the new origin along the new z-axis Examples: # Plane normal to the Z-axis, with distance. R1=PERP DZ 100 # Plane normal to the Z-axis, through point. R2=PERP P(0 0 100) DZ # Plane in point p1; normal to the absolute X-axis; # new X-axis direction of absolute Z-axis; # distance 10 into direction of new Z-axis. P1=P(100 0 0) R3=PERP P1 DX DZ 50 # Level from origin, normal vector and a point on the x-axis of the new plane R11 = PERP P(100 100 100) D(0 0 1) P(101 100 100) R12=PERP P(100 150 0) D(ANG(90) ANG(45))

PLN X-Axis [Y-Axis]

Plane from X-Axis, optional origin, Y-Axis or point on y-axis, offset along z-axis. [Origin] optional; X-Axis Vector or point on the new X-axis [Y-Axis] optional: Vector or point on the new y-axis [offset Z-axis] optional: distance of the new origin along the new z-axis Examples: # origin, X-axis, Y-axis. R12=P(100 100 100) D(1 0 0) D(0 1 0) # Level/reference system through three 3D points; # po = the origin, # px = a point on the x-axis of the new plane # pt = a point in the plane (must not be on the line po-px). R4 = P(100 100 100) P(101,100,100) P(100,101,100) R20=P(100 100 25) DX DY R10 = P(100 100 100) DZ R11 = P(100 100 100) D(0 0 1) P (101 100 100) R13 = P(100 100 100) L(P(0 0 0) P(0 0 100))

PLN PT Plane Offset Angle

Move, rotate a plane/reference system Set new origin, move the origin along X/Y/Z-axis, rotate the X-axis and Y-axis around the Z-axis All parameters are optional. [Origin] the new orgin [Refsys] plane to be moved [offset-X-axis] move the new origin along the X-axis [offset-Y-axis] move the new origin along the Y-axis [offset-Z-axis] move the new origin along the Z-axis [Angle-around-Z] rotate the reference system around Z-axis (degree) [Angle-around-Y] rotate the reference system around Y-axis (degree - tilt-angle) Example: # # R20 - set new orgin R21=RSYS P(100 100 50) R20 # R20 - move orgin, rotate axes R22=RSYS R20 X(100) Y(100) ANG(180) ____________________________________________________________________________

MAN functions for planes and axis systems (further functions):

Plane parallel to the XY plane, all axis directions are the same as the main axis. The distance on the Z-axis is specified. R = Z (Z_distance) R5 = Z(100) Plane parallel to the YZ plane, and the new X-axis corresponds to the 3D Y-axis, the new Y-axis corresponds to the 3D Z-axis. The new Z-axis is the axis-X. R = X(X_distance) Plane parallel to the XZ plane, and the new X-axis corresponds to the 3D X-axis, The new Y-axis corresponds to the 3D Z-axis. The new Z-axis is the axis-Y. R = Y(Y_distance) ____________________________________________________________________________
