Welcome to the Rhino 7 version of this page! Looking for the newer Rhino 8 WIP version?

Transform Breps

Demonstrates how to move (or transform) a user-specified Brep object.

partial class Examples
  public static Rhino.Commands.Result TransformBrep(Rhino.RhinoDoc doc)
    Rhino.DocObjects.ObjRef rhobj;
    var rc = RhinoGet.GetOneObject("Select brep", true, Rhino.DocObjects.ObjectType.Brep, out rhobj);
    if(rc!= Rhino.Commands.Result.Success)
      return rc;

    // Simple translation transformation
    var xform = Rhino.Geometry.Transform.Translation(18,-18,25);
    doc.Objects.Transform(rhobj, xform, true);
    return Rhino.Commands.Result.Success;
Partial Friend Class Examples
  Public Shared Function TransformBrep(ByVal doc As Rhino.RhinoDoc) As Rhino.Commands.Result
	Dim rhobj As Rhino.DocObjects.ObjRef = Nothing
	Dim rc = RhinoGet.GetOneObject("Select brep", True, Rhino.DocObjects.ObjectType.Brep, rhobj)
	If rc IsNot Rhino.Commands.Result.Success Then
	  Return rc
	End If

	' Simple translation transformation
	Dim xform = Rhino.Geometry.Transform.Translation(18,-18,25)
	doc.Objects.Transform(rhobj, xform, True)
	Return Rhino.Commands.Result.Success
  End Function
End Class
