Specifying the coordinate system

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Parametric shapes are defined with respect to a shape specific coordinate system. This coordinate system is shown in red in the detailed drawing of the chosen parametric shape. To compute geometric properties with respect to an arbitrary coordinate system, specify the orientation and position of the coordinate system using the beta angle, Xc and Yc parameters.
