model
Creates a new 3D model based on vertex and face data.
Syntax

model(s, [a[, f[, d[, α]]]])

s is a string containing the vertex and face data of the model

a is a threedimensional real vector

f is a threedimensional real vector

d is a threedimensional real vector

α is a real number

Description
model(s)
creates a 3D model based on the vertex and face data given in s
.
s
must be in the Algosim 3D model format, a superset of a subset of the Wavefront OBJ format.
model(s, a, f, d, α)
translates the object by a
, scales it by diag(f)
, aligns its axis with d
, and rotates it an amount α
about its axis.
If omitted, a
defaults to ❨0, 0, 0❩
, f
to ❨1, 1, 1❩
, d
to ❨0, 0, 1❩
, and α
to 0
.
The object is shown in the current scene and a reference to the object is returned.
The AdjustVisual
function can be used to adjust the appearance of the object. See Visual settings for a list of applicable settings.
