Other form of GlobalPlacement Rotation

Post by manos »

Hi
The rotation of GlobalPlacement can be presented in many forms: The getGlobalPlacement uses the form :Euler angles and Angle. But another form would be very usefull too, like : Vector (rotation axis) and float (rotation angle) . Is there any way to get Global Placement Rotation in this or another way ?
Any help is welcomed.

:? '.Angle' and '.Axis' are exactly this.
'.Angle' isn't linked to Euler angles, which are standalone.

Unfortunately both obj.Placement.Rotation.Axis and obj.Placement.Rotation.Angle refer to the Local Coordinate System not to the Global.

Thanks anyway.

Code: Select all

obj.getGlobalPlacement().Rotation.Axis
obj.getGlobalPlacement().Rotation.Angle
A placement is a placement, whatever the way you got it.

I hadn't tried with parenthesis. I am a stupid.

Thanks a lot openBrain.
